Abstract

In Australia and many other developed countries, there are now acute skills shortages in a number of different industries - healthcare being a notable example. The need to attract and retain the best available employees has become a critical managerial task. Building a strong employer brand offers a promising approach to this problem. The academic literature is still at a relatively early stage of development but internal relationship marketing and corporate reputation have been identified as two key concepts associated with employer branding. This case study of a private hospital in Australia explores the role of these concepts in building employer brand equity. Initial findings suggest corporate reputation has an asymmetric impact - the costs of a negative reputation far outweigh the benefits of a positive one.
