No matter what size a company is, where it is located, its structure, or the services it offers, recruiting and retaining talent will be a top priority.   

One way of not only staying competitive and attractive in the hiring market, but also making sure employees remain happy, engaged, and loyal, is by developing a strong employee value proposition (EVP).   

An EVP is akin to a business’ mission statement or even personality, serving as a constant reminder of its values and goals. A strong EVP can hold far more value for employees than just a salary and it can do wonders for your employer brand.   

Conversely, businesses can face negative impacts if they do not have a strong EVP.   

These include:   

  • Failing to meet hiring or organisational goals, putting their teams under extra pressure as a result 

  • Increased recruitment costs and a higher rate of people leaving leading to the need for more recruitment 

  • Having to offer higher salaries to compensate 

  • The loss of talented people, who are costly to replace 

  • A reduction in service and capability, leading to a loss of customers 

Our masterclass with Annie Parry, RPO Operational Excellence Director, Reed Talent Solutions and Steve Dilley, Managing Consultant, Consultancy+, part of Reed Talent Solutions, provided an in-depth look at how to create an EVP that resonates.   

During the webinar, they explained why EVP is so important, what makes a great EVP and the steps companies can take to build a proposition that hits home with existing and prospective employees.
