Our Thorough and Collaborative Approach.

Throughout the Employer Brand Audit process, our employer brand advisors work closely with your team. We conduct in-depth research, collect relevant data, and utilise strategic frameworks to gain a comprehensive understanding of your employer brand. Our approach combines qualitative and quantitative analysis to provide you with a holistic assessment.

An efficient audit process.

We ensure a smooth and efficient audit process to minimise disruption to your business. Our process typically follows these steps:

  1. Initial Discovery Session: We understand your employer brand goals, agree on key contact points, and establish the data-sharing process.
  2. Engagement Letter and Confidentiality Agreement: We issue the necessary documents to formalise our engagement.
  3. Stakeholder & Employee Identification and Scheduling: We work with you to identify key stakeholders and employees and schedule interviews and meetings.
  4. Employer Brand Analysis: We analyse your employer brand elements, talent attraction strategies, employee experience, and internal communications.
  5. Audit Report Building: We compile all findings, insights, and recommendations into a detailed audit report.
  6. Audit Presentation: We present the audit report to you, highlighting key insights and recommendations.

Convenient and secure collaboration.

While most of the audit can be conducted remotely, we may require access to your internal communication platforms, employee feedback surveys, and HR documentation. Rest assured, we uphold strict confidentiality, securely storing your business information in a data room on our client portal. For extra assurance, we enter into a mutual confidentiality agreement before the engagement begins.

  • Detailed Audit Report: A comprehensive report highlighting key findings, insights, and tailored recommendations for your employer brand strategy.
  • Actionable Strategies: Recommendations to optimise your talent attraction and retention efforts, enhance employee experience, and strengthen your employer brand.
