Branding for employees: encourage pride of belonging
Traditionally, most companies create a visual identity, strategic positioning and storytelling aimed exclusively at customers. But, How much do workers know about the brand? Sharing the corporate culture with your workers is much easier than it seems. And, although it is understood as something obvious, those responsible for human resources must be involved from the outset. An employee branding strategy must start from the very selection process.
At Uzink we recommend drawing up a plan that includes from welcome actions to training sessions, regular communication, events and teambuilding dynamics in the annual calendar. This strategy will not only increase group skills, commitment and motivation, but it will also make employees the first to know about the brand and know how to communicate it effectively to the end customer.
There are many resources at our disposal to make the strategy tangible. We talk about videos, internal magazines and posters, gifts and corporate material, a web portal or mobile application for the employee. Technology has become a key tool, especially in the context of the pandemic we are currently experiencing. That's why, the current trend speaks of creating virtual work environments where, in addition to facilitating remote work, interaction, communication and well-being are encouraged, through initiatives that include a concept of gamification.
