In times of economic uncertainty, the first instinct for many businesses is to cut costs to survive. Any expenditures deemed to be unnecessary in order to survive are often the first to go. Workers on part-time, job share, freelance and those on zero-hours contracts may find themselves in a fragile situation. The headlines in the wake of the COVID-19 Crisis are peppered with household brand names that have resorted to laying off staff just to survive.
These challenging times can prove to be the right time to invest in future employer brand salience and emerge from the crisis in a healthy state ready to grow. There are many examples of famous brands that started in precarious times. Walt Disney began in 1923 shortly after the Influenza Epidemic of 1920, Hewlett-Packard started in 1939 at the beginning of the Second World War and Microsoft was born in 1973 amid the Oil Crisis and three-day week.
The characteristics displayed by resilient brands during fragile times include; Trust, Relevance, Difference and above all a commitment to their People.
The key takeaways from this session will include insights into Resourcefulness, Judgement, Commitment, Timing and Tenacity.
If you are interested in building long term value for your organisation and building a strong employer brand, then this session is for you.
