We are Employer Branding Institute

(but we call ourselves EBI)

We were born in 2011 as one of the first employer branding companies in Poland. From the very beginning, our mission was to educate and support employers in building their strong employer brands. Through the years we’ve seen many successes and failures. Today we are the leaders in our domain. We used our whole experience and knowledge to create efficient tools that we want to share to support employers and specialists in building strong employer brands.

  • we’ve supported more than 100 large employers with our knowledge, helping them prepare EB strategies and campaigns (and the largest Polish employer hires over 50.000 employees)
  • we’ve manned brands on geographically various markets (we even reached Chennai, which is quite far from Warsaw), prepared positioning campaigns for whole sectors (including quickly expanding SSC/BPO, coordinating over 80 employers consociated in ABSL), reaching out to difficult target groups (one of the most interesting challenges was Hunter’s position)
  • we carried out 17 employer branding and HR conferences (HRcamp and Warsaw Recruitment Days)
  • we’ve educated more than 100 EB specialists (studiaeb.pl) and awarded over 50 employers for their actions in EBstars and HRHero contests
  • we gathered 500 EB indicators on which we base employer brand diagnosis
  • we fell in love with gamification and built our own recommendation program platform on it (and it works for many companies)
  • we’ve convinced 6.000.000 Poles that they CAN like their jobs within the pracujebolubie.pl project
  • ever since portal's fundation 8 years ago, we support HR specialists through inspirations and news published on HRstandard.pl
our approach

ideas + data = performance

Modern employer branding changes faster than any other HR and marketing discipline. Access to new data and ability to process them, new technologies, robotisation, artificial intelligence, changes in media consumption of new generations shape this discipline beyond recognition. There is one constant element though, which is Human: human’s needs, emotions and cognitive processing. Understanding and connectiong those two poles decides on employer’s success. That’s why our USP is: ideas + data = performance

Our actions are based on 4 pillars:

1. Knowledge about brands’ mechanisms

The basics of our actions are understanding and knowledge of what builds up the brand’s power, what it consists of and how the candidates and employees see it. It allows us to conduct a strategic diagnosis and plan actions leading to a long-term success.

2. Talent analytics

We work on an evidence-based employer branding approach – that’s why we first analyse data and processes from whole candidate experience cycle and then from employee’s experience with employer brand. In EBI we identify over 500 indicators, processes and tools.

3. People science

Creating communication and designing tools we base on understanding how people – candidates and employees – work (like, in this metaphysical way, not exactly how they push buttons). This allows us to build engaging tools and effective communication. People Science involves cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, recipient’s emotions and motivations, shaping attitude, group processes and decisionmaking paradigms.

4. New Technologies and Effects-Based Merketing

…that is, experience and tools, without which modern employer branding cannot be effective. For us it’s about a skillful combining of insight and tools supported by new technologies. That’s wjy GA, GDN, CTA, Bounce rate, SEO, SEM, dropout, CPC, marketing automation or AI is our bag.
