Harder to reach top talent

Melissa Bailey - Universum“As the competition for top talent grows increasingly fierce, it’s more important than ever for employers to be proactive about building brands to attract the right people. Through the survey data, employers can gain insights about the preferences of their target group and leverage that information to build a message that resonates. These rankings celebrate the employers that have made deliberate investments in their employer brand.”
