Unpacking the EVP

The concept of an EVP has transformed from just-another-HR-thing to a crucial strategic asset in boosting engagement and retaining talent. 📈 

While we often tout our companies as the best places to work, it's crucial to ask: What truly sets us apart? Why should employees choose your company over others? 🤔 

A robust Employee Value Proposition (EVP) serves as the answer, distinguishing your company in a fiercely competitive job market. It helps in aligning what your company offers—be it culture, benefits, career development opportunities—with what employees value the most. 🤩 

As we tread deeper into 2024, with so many changes in the EX world, it’s clear that rethinking EVP is now a necessity.

Here are some standout statistics and strategic recommendations from the Mercer’s 2024 Global Trends report:

  • Personalization of EVP: About 51% of employees expressed a preference for more personalized rewards, reflecting a broader demand for bespoke and flexible working arrangements that cater directly to individual needs and life stages. Pssst: like EngageWith

  • Transparency and Technology: With 45% of organizations emphasizing total rewards technology, it's clear that transparency through tech solutions is becoming integral to EVP strategies.

  • Focus on Career Development and Well-being: WorkSafe Victoria highlights the emphasis on aligning EVP with career development opportunities and well-being initiatives. Their focus groups revealed that such alignment significantly boosts retention and recruitment, particularly in competitive sectors. Read the full case study in the report.


Tips for HRs | How to Enhance Your EVP with Data

  • Understand Employee Needs: Use data from employee surveys to grasp what your employees value most in their work and life. This could include flexible working conditions, career development opportunities, or wellness programs.

  • Benchmarking: Compare your EVP against competitors. What are they offering? Use industry reports and salary surveys to understand where your EVP stands and where it needs reinforcement.

  • Feedback Loop: Regularly collect and analyze feedback on your EVP. Are employees satisfied with the components? What changes are they interested in seeing?

💡 Pro Tip from the report: A strong EVP ties the company’s purpose and talent strategy to employees’ personal experience at work. Much of this comes down to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

Once a distinct discipline, DEI now shapes the entire workforce agenda, and it’s become even more important given AI’s potential to deepen inequities. 🙅 

Only 4% of workers say that their company’s DEI practices leave much to be desired, and 98% of HR leaders report their company’s DEI initiatives have produced concrete results over the last few years. 👏
