Generations of employees move through your organization as the years go by, but hopefully, your brand remains timeless and ever-present. But this doesn’t happen by accident; on the contrary, you need to stay committed to brand development and audience engagement in order to appeal to new generations of talent and maintain interest in your corporate culture.
Offer Value to Target Audience
If you want to entice the next generation of top talent to the business, you need to occupy their world. This new talent needs to view your business and brand as a viable option for their future, so you need to strike a balance between creating an appropriate brand and making it appealing.
When it comes to providing content to your target audience, it can be tempting to hold back the key information or saleable assets, so they can be monetized later on. While this is one possible strategy, it doesn’t always work, especially when you are trying to convince new people to apply.
Showcase a day in the Life
A day in the life of someone working in your organization is an excellent way to give potential employees a chance to lift the curtain on your business and connect with the brand in a new way. These videos are excellent recruitment devices as they help people imagine their future.
Pay special attention to the message you want to convey in your recruitment video, and don’t underinvest in the quality of production. The fact is that new generations are tuned into online media and can sniff our shameless marketing campaigns, so make sure it is authentic.
