The mission of an employer brand manager is to cultivate and amplify the reputation of their organization as an employer of choice. Central to this role is crafting a compelling narrative that showcases the company’s values, culture, and growth opportunities to attract top talent.

This involves developing strategies to promote the employer brand across various channels, ensuring a positive candidate experience throughout the recruitment process, and engaging with current employees to understand their perspectives and areas for improvement.

Key responsibilities include implementing branding initiatives that resonate with candidates and employees, tracking metrics to measure the effectiveness of branding efforts, and collaborating with internal departments to align branding strategies with broader business objectives.

In this article, you’ll learn not only how to monitor and respond to feedback but also how to use social media proactively to enhance your employer brand.

Additionally, we’ll explore the significance of staying ahead of HR marketing trends and how analytics can inform your strategy. Let’s get started.

Improve the candidate and employee experience thanks to social listening

On various platforms like social media, employee review websites, and forums, candidates openly share their experiences with your company after interacting with your recruiting team, whether it’s during a job interview or at a job fair.

If their experience was negative, it’s crucial to identify it promptly to implement necessary changes. If it was love at first sight, use it to send some kudos to the team !

Your employees also have the ability to share their thoughts, not just candidates. They can do so on platforms like Glassdoor, whether they’re currently part of your team or have moved on.

This feedback can be crucial for identifying any warning signs early on, allowing you to address concerns promptly and maintain a positive work environment.

It provides valuable insights into employee satisfaction, morale, and areas needing improvement.

By heeding this feedback, you can implement necessary changes to enhance employee engagement and retention, ultimately fostering a more productive and harmonious workplace culture.

If the feedback is positive, it’s a great opportunity to kick-start your employee referral program. Leverage your team members’ enthusiasm and satisfaction to attract top talent, foster a culture of advocacy, and incentivize employee engagement.

In any case, don’t let any comment unknown to your organization, thanks to a social listening tool.

But what is social listening, and how does it work ?

Social listening is a strategic practice that can be employed by employer branding managers to monitor and analyze online conversations and mentions related to their organization across various social media platforms, forums, review sites, and other digital channels.

It involves actively tracking discussions, comments, reviews, and feedback to gain insights into how the company is perceived by candidates, employees, and other stakeholders.

For example, Mention allows you to track posts on LinkedIn, or Glassdoor and Indeed that are related to your brand. Employer branding managers use social listening tools to identify strengths, weaknesses, and emerging issues related to the employer brand.

When setting up a Mention alert for your employer branding, it’s pretty straightforward.

  • Step one: Plug in your brand name.
  • Step two: Add forums to the sources, and select “monitored pages” like your own Glassdoor page and anything else that might look relevant.

Once your alert is set up, you’ll receive all your feed’s latest comments and reviews. If you prefer, you can also get updates via email or Slack for maximum convenience.
