As competition is escalating in China and Asia, businesses are putting more effort to increase capability in the field, talent development. This kind of capability has a lot to do with organizational capability of deploying and developing effective employer brand strategy, since, in the increasingly competitive labor marketplace, how an organization effectively attracts, develops, inspires and retains talent, largely depends on how proactively it manages both tangible and intangible aspects of the employment package, and how well it communicates its employer brand value proposition to both targeted applicants and existing employees. “I think the Employer Brand strategy is very important in Asia, and the concept of EB/EVP is the key focus to engage and retain employers”, Stacey Lagala, VP, Client Strategy from TMP worldwide acknowledged.
LinLead, as China Mainland’s 1st home-grown independent meeting organizer, has been working in the field to facilitate recognition and application of the concept in China and Asia from 2009, and receive solid appraisals from professionals in HR and marketing communities.
