Why is podcasting a powerful channel for Employer Branding & Talent Acquisition?
The battle for top talent is difficult enough even if you have a strong employer branding and talent acquisition strategy in place. Without one? Fugetaboudit.
Podcasting has emerged as a dynamic way to build your employer brand and, consequently, attract and hire the best employees. Here are a few reasons why:
Humanize Your Employer Brand
The best potential employees want to know more about your organization than salary and benefits. They want to know who they’ll be working with and for and what makes the business tick. Starting a podcast featuring leaders, managers, and employees discussing their roles and the unique dynamics of the day-to-day work is a powerful way to give prospective hire a window onto your culture, values, and the kinds of people that make your organization what it is.
Reduce Bad Hires
Hiring the wrong candidates can be costly, resulting in increased employee turnover and money wasted on training and onboarding workers who don’t last long enough to provide a return on your investment in them. A podcast that provides job seekers with an in-depth sense of who and what you’re looking for in an ideal candidate will help attract the best people to apply and ward off candidates who are not a good fit.
You’ll have access to data and analytics around how many employees are listening to/downloading episodes, where listeners are located, the devices they’re using to listen, and more. Data is useful for calculating ROI and for honing in on which topics get the most listener engagement.
