1/21/2019
More
I'm certain that when I say the word "woke" I sound like an ass, but the new Gillette commercial has really forced us all to ask ourselves, "how woke should and can my employer brand be?" And that's what we'll talk about today.

EP 104 - Culture Is Not The Employer Brand

1/7/2019
More
It's easy to get confused when we don' take the time to define our terms, but you can't swap out your employer brand for your culture. Why? Aside from the fact that they are different things, come from different places and are changed in different ways? Well, you'll have to just listen to find out.

Welcome to the new year! Resolutions suck, but that doesn't mean this isn't a great time to make change happen.

EP100 - Zen and the Art of Employer Brand

12/10/2018
More
On this, our one hundredth episode, I try to explain the entirety of employer branding in sixty seconds. No special effects or auditory/podcast tricks. No visual aids or speed talking. I just get to the never-stated core of employer branding. Oh, and I swear a lot. This is not the podcast to play at your next holiday party while you're tucking into that meal. Well, none of these are probably good for that. Unless you're into that. You do you. I got your back. (no one ever reads these, so......

EP099 - I Hate Facebook / Advertising Is Not Marketing

12/3/2018
More
It's been a rough week for Facebook, and all of the advertising market. This wouldn't be so much of an issue if so many recruitment and talent leaders weren't confusing advertising and marketing. They aren't the same. So here's my chance to scare you away from over-indexing and over-investing on ads and focus more on the bigger picture. Show notes: Webinar: Hiring Is Holistic.

EP 098 - When it Gets Quiet

11/26/2018

This is an epic opportunity! Between Thanksgiving and New Years, things get much slower. The pace of new requisitions dries up and it's time to think about the holiday party or next year's planning and budgeting. This is when you need to identify and launch that one program you never have time to get to, even though you know it will make your life easier in 2019. So get to it!

EP 097 - The Employer Brand Is The Brand

11/19/2018
More
I know that the consumer marketing team gets all the money and attention. But should they? Can a case be made to say that your employer brand is more important than consumer marketing? Or at least that the employer brand is the beating heart of all other marketing efforts? I think so. So take a listen and see if you agree that your employer brand really is your company's brand.

EP 096 - The Optimization Trap

11/12/2018
More
Getting better is great. Sometimes, as we explore and experiment with recruiting and employer branding ideas, focusing on getting a little better might be all we can shoot for. But an over-reliance on optimization, the 2%, 3%, 5% increases year of year of our channels and tactics, leads to stagnation. The best way to ensure you eventually become irrelevant is to focus exclusively on optimization. Want to really get better? Ignore optimization and seek revolution every single day. Show notes:...

EP 095 - Who Is Your Competition?

11/5/2018

How many people think you are competing with Google/Facebook for dev talent? You're nuts, but you're not alone. So many companies consider Google/Facebook/Amazon/et al as competition for talent, but miss their real competition. In this episode, we think through the question of who your real competition is so you can evaluate your own employer brand better.

If Maya Angelou was right, and people don't remember what you say as much as how you made them feel, why aren't we striving to make truly emotional employer brand messages? Why aren't we trying to make candidates feel something?

EP 093 - The Employer Brand Manifesto

10/22/2018

There's a reason employer brand people feel like a person without a country, not quite fitting into recruiting or marketing, but needing to influence both. In this episode, I try to plant a flag, defining the EB pro's value (to ourselves and our employers), and start to see how employer brand might just be the way we re-invent this whole recruiting thing from the ground up.

EP 092 - Plumbers or Architects

Managing an employer brand usually means feeling more like a plumber than an architect. But here's the twist: plumbers are more important and have a bigger impact than architects.

EP 091 - Employer Brand for Employees

10/8/2018

99% of all employer brand conversations are about recruiters, candidates and hiring managers. Um... how did we forget employees!? Not only are they the backbone and living embodiment of the brand, they are directly impacted by it.

Every day, you are collecting resumes from hundreds or thousands of people thinking this is their dream job, even though most won't get so much as a phone call. If I ran a business where I annoyed and disappointed so many potential customers, I'd find that concerning.
