AbstractAn employer branding can be understood as a set of procedures which instigates with the contact for the very beginning of the probable candidate with the organisation brand. This stream flows endlessly through every phase of the association journey. This journey may be referred as the “Talent Journey”. It includes the details, additional information, and complete data required behind the recruitment and selection process, keeping the candidate pleased, engaged, and loyal to the organisation. It also provides insights into how keenly and enthusiastically employees of the organisation endorse working at the specific organisation.
“An employer brand is an intangible. However, many tangible practices and behaviors contribute to it.” Edward E. Lawler.
Employees engaged in CSR activities perform to their best and create a special place for the organisation in the market. An organisation is considered successful where the employees of that particular organisation feel valued because of their loyalty. This feeling of loyalty comes with the exponential organisational support and the management standing by with their commitments. Providing such kind of support and fulfillment of commitments towards the employees gives that organisation a better identification in the industry because employees don’t wish to leave such organisations. Employees working with such organisations always consider themselves accountable for the success in building the brand image. In these types of organisations, the attrition goes down, best talent stays back and hence the face value of the company automatically goes up.
