Client Brief

To develop a global EVP and creative platform with sufficient flexibility to adapt to different market contexts and target groups.

Shaping a Successful Employer Brand

Employer Value Proposition

The Employer Value Proposition (EVP) pillars were first developed in 2018 drawing on Universum’s global talent insights, client workshops and employee focus groups. The EVP was subsequently updated in 2020 to ensure it is closely aligned with the new corporate purpose and a range of new policies designed to help Mondelez adapt successfully to the post-Covid talent environment.

Creative Platform

The ‘Make It’ tagline and creative framework were designed to combine a consistent call to action with a wide variety of potential variations capable of adaptation to the needs and aspirations of different target groups.

Guidance on the application of the creative framework was provided in an Employer Brand Cookbook covering every aspect of the new creative identity and campaign structure. This was then translated into an online brand management tool enabling local recruitment managers to tailor content to their needs within a consistent brand framework.

Brand Video

Creating a video that brought the EVP to life

Universum worked with MDLZ to create a script that brought the EVP to life in a succinct and engaging way. This was then storyboarded by our creative team and briefed in to a local production agency for filming and editing.


Running in parallel to creative development, the persona project helped define key profiles in ways that help recruiters identify, attract and engage the right people to become the future makers and bakers of MDLZ.

Social Media Playbook

With the Employer Brand look and feel established, we turned our attention to the social media rollout, creating campaign concepts that would bring each pillar of the EVP to life, aligned to the drivers for particular personas and audiences.

Using a data-driven approach coupled with our unique talent targeting method, Universum help employers develop and communicate relevant and engaging employer brand content.
