Every month, Strictly Business celebrates the accomplishments of local businesses and highlights the excellent products and services they provide in their fields. Our quarterly Employing Lincoln feature is an opportunity for these businesses and organizations to also promote themselves as a great place to work and share with our readers what positions they are hiring for.

Having a good employer brand is so important. Recruiting.com backs this up in a recent blog post, stating that “With national unemployment rates below 4%, the war for talent is fierce and to get the right candidates in the right positions, your recruiting strategy can no longer be passive. To stay ahead of your competition, your organization needs to invest in building an authentic and compelling employer brand.”

To promote your employment brand, you first have to define it. According to Recruiting.com, your employment brand incorporates several different components—from company culture to employee engagement! So there are a wide variety of topics to choose from when deciding what to share when you invest in recruitment marketing. Here are a few great subjects to cover:

• Work environment
• Work culture
• Company values
• Company events
• Company rewards
• Employee benefits
• Hiring practices
• Company news and updates

Recruiting.com advices businesses to, “Focus on sharing information that will resonate most with your target candidates and differentiate you from your competitors. If you aren’t sure which information that is, take some time to research your target candidates. Ask your current employees what they enjoy most about working at your company, and find out what aspects of your employment brand most resonated with recent hires.”

At Strictly Business, we truly believe that Lincoln is a wonderful place to live, WORK, and play. We are honored to partner with so many amazing employers, and we are proud to tell you a little bit about a few of them in this feature. Whether you have recently found yourself “between jobs” or you’re curious about pursuing a new passion, we encourage you to read through the following write-ups to learn about employment opportunities at some amazing local companies. In addition, if you are currently with a company that is looking to add people to your team, please reach out to Strictly Business about participating in our next employment feature!
