- When creating an employee value proposition (EVP), organizations often forget about the employee voice, neglect to look at competitors, and confuse the EVP and employer branding. This can lead to inaccurate, misaligned, and undifferentiated EVPs.
- Unrealistic EVPs can do more harm than good. If the lived experience does not match candidate expectations, the organization will continue to struggle to attract and retain talent.
A strong EVP provides a compelling but realistic view of the benefits of joining the organization while also leading to a connection that encourages employees to stay.
Impact and Result
- Ensure the EVP is realistic and compelling by using the employee voice to uncover the lived experience and the organizational offerings that are highly valued.
- Highlight the unique features of your organization in the EVP to differentiate from competitors and support recruitment and retention efforts by enabling potential and current employees to assess fit.
- Refine the EVP using an iterative process.
