Think of it as your company's unique promise to potential and current employees. It's a statement that outlines the benefits and value of working for your organization. Now, why is an EVP important, you might wonder. Picture that by defining your EVP and sharing it with job seekers, you're essentially showcasing why your company is the best choice for their career aspirations. It's like an elevator pitch to candidates and employees. So how do you create an EVP that truly resonates with your target audience? It's all about crafting a compelling message that highlights what sets your organization apart from the rest. Think about unique culture, growth opportunities and company values. First, define who exactly your EVP is, for it's crucial to consider the needs and desires of both existing employees and potential candidates. Conducting surveys is a great place to start.

Ask about your company's work culture and have employees rank the importance of your benefits. These questions will help you prioritize the order of benefits. In your EVP statement for candidates, you'll need to research the type of people you're trying to attract to each role. We recommend creating a candidate persona to help you zero in on the characteristics and traits of a perfect hire. Next, think about what information you want your EVP to include. Ask yourself what candidates need to know to decide whether they want to work for your company. Some examples to consider include benefits, professional development opportunities, work environment and company culture. Remember to order them based on employee research and candidate persona findings. Now let's talk about communication. When sharing your organization's EVP, it's essential to utilize a variety of channels. For existing employees, include references to your EVP in places like your company handbooks and onboarding materials. For candidates. Include your EVP in areas like job postings, company website and social media.

If these metrics aren't where you want them to be, it might be time to revisit your EVP. Lastly, let's look at some real-world examples of company EVPs. Our EVP at human is creating great employment experiences by building a people-centric culture. It mentions our mission and touches on our culture, underscoring that our organization is centered around people. Hubspot's EVP is building a company people love, a company that will stand the test of time. So we invest in our people and optimize for your long-term happiness. Another example is Nike.
