Virtual Think Tank Series
How to Pivot Your Employer Branding Strategy During Times of Crisis
Tuesday, September 29 2020 • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (EDT)
With the COVID-19 pandemic, rising unemployment rates and the Black Lives Matter movement, a lot of employees are feeling unsettled, distracted and even fearful. While many employees know what to expect and trust their employers’ actions in good times, how a company responds to a crisis – whether positively or negatively – will stay with people for the long term.
The responses and actions of your company right now will come to define your employer brand and in turn your ability to attract and retain talent. Additionally, your employer brand during this time can also have an impact on your bottom line. Research shows that 54% of consumers say they are concerned with how employers are treating employees during this crisis period, while 48% indicate they trust brands more when they take care of their employees.*
Scott Bonneau, VP of Talent Attraction at Indeed, will begin the session sharing his insights and having a group discussion on the importance of employer branding during times of crisis, including:
- Strategies to ensure you’re building an authentic employer brand built on transparency and trust
- Insight into how Indeed has responded to COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement
- How Indeed is supporting organizations to ensure they are top-rated employers
Following the discussion with Scott, attendees will have a 20-minute one-on-one conversation with an Indeed platform expert to gain exclusive insight into industry trends and how you’re measuring against top performers on the platform.
