people across the business.”
The Best Employer Brand on LinkedIn category recognises companies who focused on building a strong employer brand to engage with their audience in a meaningful way. The banks performance, its results and impact of the brand utilising the platform was analysed to determine how companies generate the most interest from job seekers and do the best job holding on to new talent. Categories that companies were selected on include interest, engagement, demand, and retention of talent. He adds that, “LinkedIn is a platform that has provided us with the opportunity to connect and network with new and existing candidates. To expedite our bold fintech and platform-related aspirations in banking, insurance, investments, and telecommunications, we embarked on a recruitment campaign to recruit 300 additional experts with engineering, technology, data and quant skills to supplement our existing cohort of more than 5000 equivalent skills.”
