#WorkTrends Recap: Brand Culture at the Intersection of HR and Strategy

Imagine your consumer brand and employer brand as concentric circles. In the very center you’ll find an overlap of similar traits. So why do companies struggle to understand how the two are actually critical to both your consumers and employees and impact both on the same level.

On this week’s #WorkTrends show, host Meghan M. Biro was joined by Larry Oakner and Rebecca Longman of Tenet Partners. They discussed the intricacies of company branding, human resources, and employee engagement.

Larry and Rebecca shared what it takes to make your organization a magnet for keeping employees and attracting desired talent.

Here are a few key points that Larry and Rebecca shared:

  • HR leaders should be more involved with their staff more frequently. A constant conversation should happen
  • Humanity is key, not just numbers
  • More companies need to understand the impact employees have on the bottom line
