Event details

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.
