HR and Marketing Unite: Joining Forces to Beat the Talent Odds

Event Link
Thursday 06 October
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Companies that aren’t household names often have to battle for talent against well-known brands. This year, the People and Marketing teams at SMB software company Lever kicked into collaborative overdrive to overcome such an awareness deficit. The results? They successfully “recruited” 80% of their own employees to help shape a powerful, differentiated employer brand; amplified the resulting messages across HR and marketing channels alike; and more than doubled their headcount and client roster. Hear how to leverage your employees as ambassadors and turn them into an employer branding advantage, effectively engage with marketing as a partner, and implement great place to work strategies without breaking the budget.
