The concept of Employer Branding features more and more often in discussions on modern business, but the multiplicity of ideas for implementation strategies is confusing for many entrepreneurs. In order to fully answer the question in the title, we should look at the issue in a more comprehensive way. This need is addressed by the organizers of The BSS Tour: Poland cycle from the Pro Progressio Foundation, who have now changed traditional panel discussions into presentations of practical solutions from the perspective of BPO/SSC employers, employees and candidates, as well as experts using and developing new branding tools on a daily basis.
The fifth conference of the trans-Poland series of meetings will be held in Częstochowa. The event will focus on the effective building of an employer’s brand in the employee’s market era. Representatives of the modern business services sector, shared services centres, outsourcing companies, as well as companies offering such services to business clients and whose activities are based on them, have been invited to join the discussion. Practical examples of the case study are to answer the following questions: why has Employer Branding become so important now and what benefits does it offer?
The BSS Tour Częstochowa: Employer Branding in BSS is aimed at discovering, describing and exploring the issues relating to activities that increase the attractiveness of a company in the eyes of its current and potential candidates and make it perceived as a career-friendly environment. The order of the panels and their subjects will lead the participants through a number of areas in which image-related activities are carried out, thus giving a comprehensive picture of EB – starting from the theoretical and practical knowledge, illustrated with an example of a global corporation, going through the dissection of the Candidate & Employee Experience, debates on the benefits for employees and the office layout, and finishing with presentations on online brand and social media monitoring.
The issues discussed will include:
- practical solutions in building an effective Employer Branding strategy in SSC;
- mistakes made when implementing recruitment marketing;
- the opportunities and benefits of Employer Branding, the Candidate & Employee Experience;
- the latest trends in the remuneration of employees and the layout of an effective workplace;
- the facts and myths surrounding employers in the outsourcing industry;
- tools that facilitate working with social media;
- examples of good online branding practices;
the investment potential in the sector of modern business services and the further direction of the economic development of the City of Częstochowa.
The conference will take place on 27 September 2018 at the Scout Hotel in Częstochowa and is designed for employees in charge of human resources: managers, leaders and directors who struggle on a daily basis to find qualified and committed staff.
