Presenters: Anthony McBride, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co.

The renewed war for talent has increased the need for organizations to focus on attracting and retaining critical talent. Moreover, changing workforce demographics are forcing organizations to tailor their messages to drive attraction and commitment in different key talent segments. This workshop will focus on how organizations develop, market, and measure the impact of their employee value proposition (EVP)—the set of attributes that the labor market and employees perceive as the value they gain through employment in the organization. Research on best practices in creating segmented EVPs will be discussed. In addition, real-world examples of how several companies redesigned their EVPs will be presented. This workshop should be of interest to practitioners who are responsible for recruiting, employee retention, and employment branding either in a consulting or internal role.
This workshop is designed to help participants:
Develop a compelling business case for investing in articulating and segmenting their organizations EVP and building an employment brand
Learn to apply market research principals to building an EVP
Identify the pros and cons of segmented EVPs particularly for global organizations
Identify the key steps in delivering and communicating a compelling EVP
