Find out where Oxfordshire employers are on their EVP journey: The results of our HR Hub poll in April 2024

Allen Associates, News & Blog

In the same way that organisations have long-since recognised the importance of building their client or customer-facing brand, many employers are committed to developing their Employee Value Proposition (EVP) to enhance retention, engagement and productivity.

Allen Associates HR Hub featured a presentation by Andy Macdonald, Chief People Officer at IOP Publishing, on building a global EVP in a hybrid world.

Employers and HR professionals from across Oxfordshire who attended the webinar, also took part in a live poll to help us understand where they were on their EVP journey. They also told us why they think people join and stay with their organisation.

Their responses to the poll are set out below:
