May 10, 2016: The Impact of Brand on Talent

The Impact of Brand on Talent: 

Interview with Hart Hillman,

Bigwin Group Inc. by CATA Innovation Leadership Council


Branding strategy is key to the success and failure of companies. It can take years to build and due to social media be negatively impacted in a heartbeat. Think of brands that have dealt with major scandals, such as: Volkswagen, FIFA, Bill Cosby, and Ashley Madison. Creating a consistent and compelling company brand in the digital age is more important than ever. While branding practices will always be the cornerstone to attract and retain customers, they also are being used to attract and retain great talent.
