HR and branding

In the war for talent, HR professionals are not being equipped with one of the most important weapons in the recruitment armoury – employer branding.

An exclusive survey of 1,889 Personnel Today readers with responsibility for recruitment reveals that 95% of respondents believe employer branding is ‘important’, with 80% saying that it will become even more so. And yet only 25% of those surveyed have responsibility for employer branding.
