Developing a Concept for Employer Branding, with Exove

Today’s tech industry is the most competitive it’s ever been, especially when it comes to attracting and retaining workers. A great salary only takes you so far, and potential employees keep their eye out for something extra - this is where the power of employer branding shines.
Community-building

Situation before

Exove wanted to refine their unique employer value proposition and grab the attention of potential job applicants in a highly competitive job market.

Achieve

What we did

We started with internal research and proceeded with testing. In-depth interviews allowed us to discover the true value of Exove as an employer and digital marketing allowed us to test the USP in action.

Scale

Results

With our help, Exove was able to refine their EVP to attract potential employees. Additionally, testing the copy on a bigger scale allowed us to discover the most efficient messaging that crystallized the newly refined EVP.

Brandcrafty created and validated key Employer Value Propositions and packaged them in effective messages.

Today’s tech industry is the most competitive it’s ever been, especially when it comes to attracting and retaining workers. A great salary only takes you so far, and potential employees keep their eye out for something extra.

Digital agency Exove knew this challenge firsthand when they approached Brandcrafty in the autumn of 2021. They needed a partner who could help them refine their unique employer value proposition and grab the attention of potential job applicants in the highly competitive job market.

We rose to the challenge, and together we and Exove’s team developed and validated their value proposition.

Exove wanted to find their competitive (employer) edge

As a digital agency, Exove helps their customers to achieve growth by designing and creating digital solutions that are both visually attractive and user-friendly. They develop services for a wide range of companies from startups and media companies to universities.

Exove knows that skilled IT professionals are in high demand, and grabbing the attention of potential candidates is a must for talent acquisition. Our solution? Attractive employer branding with a stellar, validated employer value proposition (EVP).

Brandcrafty did the groundwork and validated Exove's Employer Value Proposition

Our cooperation with Exove kicked off in October 2021. We started by rolling up our sleeves and interviewing some of Exove’s employees to better understand the unique characteristics of their employer brand. We also benchmarked their competitors.

Once we had done the groundwork, we workshopped and developed different key value propositions together with Exove’s team to ensure they reflected their targets and work culture. We then tested them with digital marketing campaigns on Linkedin, Instagram and Facebook.

“It was a pleasure to work with Brandcrafty and felt like we were the same team from the very beginning. Everyone in the team were true experts and challenged us, gave ideas and, of course, delivered what was promised magnificently well”, says Päivikki Kyykkä, Exove’s Sales and Marketing Director.

What we accomplished

With Brandcrafty’s help, Exove tuned up and validated a successful EVP to attract potential employees. We also found a list of communication elements that worked in driving home their message as a prospective employer.

In addition, an important outcome of the EVP project was the way Exove’s values became clearer internally in the company. This is the first step of creating a lasting impression and enables their values to shine externally to potential applicants as well.

“Our promises have been noted internally as well. Exovians have seen these as a good thing and worth of spreading the word”, remarks Päivikki.

It’s time to take your employer brand to new heights too. At Brandcrafty, we have the tools to help you chisel your employer value proposition to perfection. Send us a message, and let’s get started!
