Boost Your Hiring Success with a Strong EVP

A strong Employee Value Proposition (EVP) can make the difference between building a high-performing team and struggling to fill crucial roles. As a recruitment specialist in real estate finance, commercial banking, and alternative lending for SMEs, we have firsthand experience with the effectiveness of a well-articulated EVP in a competitive market.

Building an EVP that Attracts Top Talent

Here are some insights and suggestions on what elements make an Employee Value Proposition stand out.

  • Work-Life Balance: Emphasising your commitment to work-life balance is a significant attraction in the current talent market.
  • Collaboration is Crucial: Advocate for an inclusive and collaborative work culture. Many candidates are drawn to a culture where their contributions are valued, and collaboration is encouraged. This fosters a sense of belonging and drives innovation.
  • Mission Matters: Many candidates, especially those attracted to challenger banks, want their work to have an impact. Highlight your company’s purpose and values, particularly if they are mission-driven. Attract passionate individuals who wish to contribute to the bigger picture.
  • Career Growth: Never underestimate the allure of growth opportunities. Candidates want to know they can develop their skills and advance their careers within your organisation. Highlight training programmes, mentorship opportunities, and career paths to retain high performers.
  • Bonus Tip:  Remember the ‘fun stuff!’ Highlight unique perks like generous paid time off, healthcare packages, and team-building activities as part of your overall EVP.
  • Security Matters Too: Candidates value stability. Share your company’s financial strength and future plans to assure them of long-term security.
  • Remember, You’re Unique: Every business offers something unique. Whether it’s a casual dress code, a relaxed work environment with breakout spaces, or regular social events, highlight these unique aspects to distinguish your company.

Practical Steps to Shape Your EVP

  • Know Your Audience: Tailor your message to resonate with your target candidates. Consider their career stage, personal preferences, and professional backgrounds.
  • Speak the Same Language: Ensure everyone involved in hiring can articulate your EVP clearly. Consistency in your message is vital for attracting and retaining talent.
  • Promote Your EVP Everywhere: Incorporate your EVP into every touchpoint, from job postings to interviews. Make it clear why your company is a great place to work.
  • Show, Don’t Tell: Share success stories of current employees who have thrived at your company. This personalises your EVP and provides tangible proof of your claims. Real-life examples are highly persuasive.

Concentrating on your unique culture, growth opportunities, and commitment to work-life balance can help you shape an EVP that attracts top talent to your business. Remember, attracting talent is all about selling the company—make your EVP a powerful sales tool!
