We know firsthand how hard it is to create a great blog! We try our very best to constantly provide resources so others can also create compelling content, grounded in employee stories. Whether we’re sharing ways to connect with employees, engage candidates, improve DEI communications, develop powerful videos, or optimize messages per channel, it’s about helping our community up-level their storytelling skills. Recruitment marketing, employer branding, employee engagement and the intersection of these in your video, written and photo culture communications are always a focus. However, we also cover how to tell stories effectively to all audiences and content marketing best practices.
