How Dell measures its employment brand progress
As Michael Dell said during the formation of his holding company, Dell Technologies, “Change or die.” That sentiment is a driving force for the employment brand team at Dell. They will share how they structured the employment brand team, challenges and “lightbulb moments” they encountered, as well as their evolution in a constantly changing industry. During this time of growth, Dell’s employment brand team also realized measurement is critical to their success and executive support.
During this session, you will learn about:
- Dell’s move from no employment brand team or strategy to the formation of a world-class employment brand practice.
- How they created a new relationship with their in-house agency, globalized their social media strategy, embraced transparency and their role in employee advocacy.
- How measurement became a critical part of their objectives (and what they find value in measuring!).
