Sourcing for new employees and keeping the current ones will always be a major challenge for HR peeps. The pressure is on HR when highly valued employees resign and/or when vacant posts remain unfilled.

Likewise, programs that’ll  keep employee engagement above average and attract high valued applicants is expected from HR as business partner. This is where employer branding and selecting right employees to be brand ambassadors play a big role.

In this premise, let’s use this company as an example for using “one marketing campaign” to communicate the corporate brand to both the public and its employees.

Megaworld Corporation celebrated its silver anniversary and held an event to showcase how the corporate brand benefited both consumers (public) and employees in their personal and professional goals.

 

To effectively advertise this, they released a coffee table book narrating how the vision of  “township” by Dr. Andrew Tan, CEO and Chairman, changed the property development landscape locally, and how it benefited 25 individuals to also achieve their goals. They also held an event to honor the 25 individuals for their achievement.

Four of the twenty five awardees were employees, taking on the responsibility (indirectly as a consequence) of ambassadors and the living proof of the employer brand

  • two of them were former scholars
  • and the remaining two were considered pillars of the organization.

Click the tab below to know how each employee thought the company helped them in achieving their professional goals.

Electrical Engineer

Benje Capistrano- Electrical Engineer

He once wrote in an essay, while in sophomore high school, that he sees himself working for Megaworld in 10 years time. After graduating in high school, he applied and was accepted to be one of the scholars enabling him to pursue and finish  engineering. After making it to the top 10 of the licensure exam, he was offered a job on 2012.

Head of treasury department

Maria Rosario Rosales- Head of Treasury Department

She joined the company barely two years after its incorporation, as accounting assistant. Despite the smallness of the company then, she remained  dedicated and loyal, trusting that the company will help her grow professionally. Because of this, she was mentored and developed by her superior for a future leadership role. She presently heads one of the most sensitive department of Megaworld Corporation.

I hope I could write a follow-up article to discuss the direct effect of this campaign to its Human Resource Division, let’s wait if our request for interview will be granted.

After reading their brief profile, do you find the company attractive? Have you tried a similar strategy in the past? What was the result? Do you have another HR marketing strategy in mind? Let us know by commenting below.
