I recently read an article about an ‘anti-diversity’ memo from a guy that works at Google. (Titled “Googles Ideological Echo Chamber”). It caused a massive outcry from within Google as well as industry thought leaders. In fact it lead to the firing of senior software engineer James Damore. On a high level, James stated that Google is weakening its own organization by driving conservatives (like him) away and Google has therefore created discriminatory practices in order achieve a more equal gender and race representation. James had his say around ‘psychological differences’ between men and woman and paid the price by losing his job for implying that policies aimed at driving gender and racial change create discrimination towards him.

But not only that, I want to talk practically and tactically so that they leave with action steps to build a great culture and improve their organisations.”
What is employer branding and why is it important?
An employer brand is the identity of a company as an employer, what sets it apart and makes it the place where the up and coming top talent want to work. Your values cannot be viewed as window dressing to your brand, but should be made clear during all interactions with the organisations staff and representatives. Attracting skilled, talented employees has always been of the utmost importance, but has become increasingly challenging over the years, setting yourself apart, for the right reasons, should be paramount in your recruitment strategy.
