Employer Brand and The Rules of Your Tribe

“When you live your cultural values and you can clearly define the rules of the tribe, the employer brand isn’t just a promise or a proposition. It’s a clear definition, and introduction, and a gateway to the tribe.” - Susan Strayer LaMotte
 

Employer Brand: Member of the Tribe

“An employer brand is nothing without culture. And culture is the delivery of the promise. That’s where the tribe comes in. When asked what culture is, I use the word tribe. A functioning tribe has rules to join, rules to leave, and rules that keep the tribe running smoothly.” - Susan Strayer LaMotte
 

The Call of the Average Worker (hint – it’s not you)

Data Fatigue
