Employee Value Proposition (EVP)

What is an Employee Value Proposition (EVP)

Employee Value Proposition (EVP) is the value markets (and your own people) attribute to being employed with the organisation, in exchange for their productivity and performance. 

What is an EVP?   The Higher Mix

EVP gets right to the heart (and into people’s heads) with what really differs one organisation over another.

Clever mix of tangible; sometimes intangible, attributes and qualities, aimed at greater appeal, distinction and brand mind-share.   

Unique bundle of characteristics (and benefits) which not only motivate targeted talent to join, but also have your current team stay.  

Delivering higher retention rates of specialised talent, stronger client servicing scenarios, cost-savings, far more appealing company reputation….and who wouldn’t want these? 

Australian EVP Attributes

Typically, EVPs will drive your company’s strategic objectives (and preferred culture too.)   Adding plethora of benefits as the EVP cascades through the entire organisation.

Crafting EVP involves delicate balance, not over promising because while EVP reflects desirable future state, in unison with value offered in present day brand experience, organisations must deliver on what’s promoted and promised.   Australian EVP Attributes   The Higher MixThe Higher Mix brings companies to life through relateable, overarching EVP Attributes embodied in the Employer Brand.

Just how distinctive (or really different) is your EVP?

EVP should offer a far deeper understanding about your organisation.  What it is like to work here, difference it makes and value it adds.  Beyond attraction for pipeline of candidates with the right cultural fit, job match – equally as focused upon retention | engagement of existing talent.   

Wondering about the effectiveness of your existing Employee Value Proposition? 

Is it facilitating deeper sourcing into labour markets?  Cutting  recruitment costs, improving efficiency?  Increasing your access to passive candidates?  Improving employee engagement and commitment of existing team (and your new hires)?   Then it might be time to revisit the company’s EVP.      REVIEW MY EVP
