Implementing an effective employee value proposition

Thu 29 Mar 2018 09:30
Broadway House, Tothill Street, London, SW1H 9NQ


An employee value proposition represents the values, culture and practical benefits offered by an employer in exchange for the performance and productivity of an employee. The 'give' and the 'get'.

One might suggest that the most important thing to a prospective employee is money, but in reality, money isn’t everything. Prospective employees weigh up a number of other factors, such as learning, growth and development, to choose the organisation that’s right for them.

To attract and keep the best talent at your company, you need to stand out to the best candidates and create a compelling story that not only includes a competitive salary, but also includes the characteristics and overall appeal of working for your organisation over others. 

Topics we will cover include:

  • What do we mean by an ‘employee value proposition’ (EVP) and why is it important?

  • The impact a competitive EVP can have on your organisation.

  • Get it wrong, pay the price – broken promises and confounded expectations.

  • The steps for implementing your own effective EVP.

  • Key questions to help you take stock of your own EVP approach.

Delegates will have plenty of opportunity to share their own experiences, get others’ inputs on their particular challenges, as well as network with industry peers. 

Who should attend?

HR professionals in general roles or HR specialists in selection and assessment, hiring, learning and development, OD or talent management.
