Human resources marketing for successful recruiting

Implementing the right HR strategy and targeted HR measures directly and positively impacts the number of qualified applicants you receive. You'll be able to fill your vacancies faster while building up a pool of qualified applicants for future vacancies. At the same time, HR communications that convey your organization's strengths as an employer has a major internal impact: clearly communicating your corporate goals boosts enthusiasm in your workforce. Employee loyalty increases and staff turnover decreases. Successful human resources marketing strengthens your company from the inside out, making you all the more attractive as a brand to potential top-tier applicants.

Four HR activities to reach more candidates that best fit your corporate culture

Employer branding and HR communications are not one-off projects, they’re processes that will continually challenge you. Your organization is alive. Your employees grow and change. Our HR marketing concepts are flexible enough to react agilely to new circumstances. The same goes for our digital tools. The bottom line is that all the elements work in unison in pursuit of the same goal: improving candidates’ cultural fit to reach applicants that are a perfect fit for your organization.

Your careers site as the hub of your HR marketing

We’ll make your HR website the central hub for your HR marketing activities to boost your visibility and traffic, where all of your digital channels that you use come together. We’ll provide you with advice and support from conception to realization. Learn more about our process and the topics that should be a component in every career's site.

Multiposting to boost your reach

Multi posting makes your company present and findable on all relevant job boards, recruiting and specialist job portals. As part of our target group concept, we'll ensure your job offers appear simultaneously on over 100 channels—coupled with recruiting videos, mobile application solutions and transparent reporting.

Online marketing as a multiplier

Google display marketing, Google Ads and social media ads increase not only the number but also the quality of incoming applications. Effective ad campaigns significantly increase the visibility and attractiveness of your employer brand.

Brand ambassadors as a medium

Content marketing via HR ambassadors is like influencer marketing, except the HR influencers are already deeply rooted in your organization. Via company profiles or — even better — their own accounts on LinkedIn, Xing, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media, selected employees publish authentic insights about your company. They represent the company, post entertaining stories about the work environment and current projects, share, like, comment and network.

»Ideally, HR marketing measures build on each other. Your concept is already in place, and you only need to implement individual measures? With, for example, an HR image video, a brand ambassador concept or a new social media strategy, we can help you jumpstart your success.

Employer branding - key aspect of your HR marketing

Employer branding that translates into convincing recruiting figures is a worthwhile investment for any organization.

Everything we do on your behalf is aimed at increasing the number of applicants, getting potential candidates excited about the company, and helping you make the best use of your HR budget. After roll-out, HR campaigns are continuously evaluated and optimized.

We use key performance indicators (HR KPIs) to evaluate the success of the measures we implement in terms of both quality, quantity, effectiveness, as well as cost and time. That's how we identify the tools that work best for your particular organization and industry. We'll keep an eye on which of the tools are most effective and identify opportunities for continued optimization. In addition, together we’ll be able to take an in-depth look at each phase of the candidate journey or the employee lifecycle and gain valuable insights that unlock answers to crucial questions.
