Branding is a major differentiating factor among companies. Consumers form an emotional attachment to great brands and cannot be swayed by clever marketing and public relations tactics. Successful companies ensure their names become synonymous with the service they provide (Google anything lately?) The employer brand is just as important as the consumer brand and, if leadership can be strategic about their goals, an innovative Employer Brand can provide a long term ROI to HR garnering organic word of mouth results for talent acquisition.
