    EMPLOYER BRANDING FOR CONTROVERSIAL BRANDS


     


    One of the most interesting challenges in employer branding and talent attraction is to build and execute strategy for a company whose brand which might usually draw prejudgement and high emotion. How do you go about your work as a recruiter or talent attraction strategist in this circumstance?


     


    - How to refute the claims and challenge the brand perception


    - How to tell a different story


    - How to respond to the charges, public and private


    - Using the perception as a filter for values fit


    - Embrace the position and present the challenge

Perhaps that’s also why they picked the Grand Prix award at the RMAs last November.
