Determine your added value

To attract talent, it is important to ask yourself as an organisation: What makes us attractive as an employer? Why are we a fun, and engaging organisation to work for? In what way do we add something to the world?

Every organisation has something to offer, if not you wouldn't have any right to existence. The trick is to bring this front and centre. A clear, honest and concrete promise is a way to make your mark in your industry. Ideally, a company gains increased appeal to new employees and customers who recognise themselves in the company's message, and want to collaborate. This effect is further enhanced by the free "advertising" from existing employees, for example through social media. They are valuable ambassadors. When you as an organisation sincerely make a valuable contribution to society, the best people will come to you.

Values in balance

Of course, an organisation can serve not only the social interest. In sustainably successful organisations, that the social values along with the values of the organisation and the individual interests of the employees, are in alignment. Read more about this here.
