The Future of Employer Branding
A c-level and executive view of how organizations tackle talent attraction
Universum surveyed more than 2000 senior executives, including CEOs, heads of HR and recruiting, employer branding and marketing, among others. Our goal was to understand current attitudes for different functional areas and industries, as well as how leaders envisioned change over the next five years.
We detail complex topics such as:
- Who is accountable for employer branding?
- Are Employer Value Propositions working as they should?
- And how will employer branding budgets change in the coming years?
- …and much more.

State of Employer Branding
How long have executives argued over the need to make talent attraction a corporate strategy rather than an HR strategy?

And with good reason: Talent attraction remains a critical strategy for global organizations to outmaneuver the competition.Learn more
The Employer Brand Misalignment

To study it in more depth, Universum surveyed more than 2000 senior executives to understand current attitudes for different functional areas and industries, as well as how leaders envision change over the next five years.

Universum joined forces with INSEAD Emerging Markets Institute and the HEAD Foundation to investigate and question what has become conventional wisdom about Millennials. By conventional wisdom we mean the statements (even stereotypes) we’ve all read about, such as Millennials’ pursuit of work-life balance over money, or their expectation of rising rapidly in their chosen careers. Are these and other stereotypes really true?
