We surveyed 1,000 London-based professionals and asked them what it takes for a great brand to be somewhere great to work. All survey responses were anonymous and we offered no incentive or reward for completed surveys.

To hire great people you need to celebrate the exceptional and understand what makes the seat (or virtual seat) next to you a great place to be. From a job advert to day-to-day culture, is the perception of your future talent aligned to the reality?

Now is the time to take control of your employer brand!
