Employer brands that inspire and retain loyalty

In a nutshell

The labor market is changing. In times of a shortage of skilled workers, companies are in a position to advertise themselves as employers – not the other way around. Here, a strong employer brand is crucial for success. Based on the individual brand identity, we establish an employer brand that makes a company a top-of-mind employer – internally and externally.

In detail

Employer branding works both externally and internally

In today’s world, companies need one thing above all else: authenticity in the workplace. In the past, it was sufficient to activate the employer brand’s advantage communication only internally. Nowadays, a sophisticated employer branding strategy is needed to convince the outside world of the company as a good employer and to have a chance in the war for talents.

We ensure a positive candidate journey

Taking the strategic workshop as a basis, we help start-ups, companies and brands to put their employer brand in the right light with authentic, strongly designed career pages and specific social campaigns and job landing pages, thus convincing not only job seekers but also their own employees that they are an employer.

“When the products, services and corporate design become the face of a company, the employer brand is the heart and soul.”

How we work


Research and analysis

We do not guess into the blue. We want to get to know and understand the company, its plans and goals – over a cup of coffee (it doesn’t have to be black). Together we evaluate the positioning, competition and architecture of the corporate brand. We must first immerse ourselves in your corporate cultureso that we can swim our lanes safely. Next step: Your employer brand.


Conception and design

We give your brand personality an expressive face. So that you see your business as we see it, we create a concept that outlines colors, shapes, logo and typo. Your Go is our starting signal and we go into designing. No idea is lost: We record everything essential in our guidelines. So that you have a solid foundation on which to build excellent visualized brands.


Realization and communication

Thought locks are all well and good – we also want to bring outstanding concepts to the road. As digital natives, we support you in the rollout of your brand. Whether social media marketing, ad campaigns, website and more – individual goals require individual services. We give our all every day. Our unyielding sense of aesthetics and innovation allows nothing else.


Any questions?

The sum of all measures that pay on the positive image of your employer brand are called employer branding. An employer brand helps to draw the attention of potential candidates to your company, but also to retain your own employees in the long term. An employer brand therefore has both an inward and an outward effect.
