Free eBook: Why a Personal Employee Brand Will Save Your Career – And Your Workplace
The traditional promise of long-term corporate employment has vanished. We're moving from a top-down, hierarchical workplace to a more transparent, flat environment. Only those who develop strong personal employee brands will survive – and enable their organizations to survive.
You have to shift your thinking from the organization as provider to the organization as enabler. As your work life becomes more mobile, increasingly you need to have a clear brand to carry you from one (temporary) employment situation to the next. Failure to do so leaves you vulnerable, rather than in charge of your career. You'll experience all the worst aspects of the increased insecurity without reaping any of the benefits of the increased mobility, such as flexibility, freedom, and the right not to work in an unfulfilling job. In a world of temporary employees, personal employee brands become paramount if you are to remain relevant in your work and throughout your career.
You must invest in yourself, and in your community – which becomes larger than just your current job – to succeed. In this eBook, we offer a series of steps to help you get started in developing your own personal employee brand and ensuring your relevance and power in the workplace of the future.
Free Whitepaper Download: The Immigrant Perspective on Business Leadership
The workplace and business landscape has changed, becoming rapidly more diverse and global, and American business leadership is not moving fast enough to catch up. In fact, leadership in America's corporations is losing its impact and influence to perform in this changing terrain. As a result, U.S. businesses risk falling further behind in marketplaces around the world. Many of the dimensions of the changing competitive landscape are well known – the varying cost of labor, the shift of manufacturing overseas, the exploding economies of the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries – but what is less well understood is the role that diversity plays in both the marketplace and in the competitive advantages BRIC companies and others enjoy. It is not enough to meet the numbers in terms of workforce diversity and to pursue ethnic product differentiation, as many U. S. companies have done. Diversity – more broadly defined and better understood in the U. S. as the immigrant perspective – holds the keys to unlocking business growth and innovation in the next decade and beyond. Companies that develop an immigrant perspective will dominate their marketplaces in the years to come.
