Universum's annual Employer Branding Conference will be held at New York Times headquarters on May 8-9, 2013

Why Attend the Employer Branding Conference?
The 2013 Employer Branding Conference is an exclusive opportunity for employer branding professionals, HR directors and VPs, and talent acquisition managers across industries to learn secrets of employer branding success. Branding and recruitment professionals who attend will walk away with a new understanding of the talent market and will be equipped with tactical solutions to address their day-to-day challenges.

“We are looking forward to welcoming employer branding leaders from across the world to New York to discuss the aspirations we have for employer branding as well as tactical ways to make those a reality. Now more than ever, it is imperative for companies to differentiate themselves with strategic branding efforts. Investing upfront will lead to greater recruiting success as well as stronger retention since students who choose a company where they fit stay longer are more productive and get promoted more quickly.” Melissa Bailey, President – Americas, Universum
