Employer Branding

Using digital channels to project a company as an employer of choice is a challenge that stands at the frontier of corporate communications today. That’s because it requires credible and comprehensive content, a straightforward and user-friendly application process as well as a careful combination of channels in an increasingly social and mobile era.


Lundquist has placed particular attention on the topic of online employer branding because it is an area where companies need to be most distinctive in their communications, reaching out to their target audience and persuading them they make a suitable match. As testified by our employer branding research, users long ago grew weary and suspicious of empty phrases and faceless corporate profiles.



Our view is that even in times of economic difficulty, companies need to build an employer brand online: the challenge lies in moving beyond a mere recruitment-based approach towards strategic use of digital tools – the corporate website and social media – to boost reputation both in the marketplace for talent and in the online world generally.
