Employer branding and its relation with HR functions of employee recruitment and retention: A review of literature
The current recruitment scenario, which is highly dynamic and challenging, calls for the attention of academics and practitioners alike. Recently, several studies were conducted to understand the possible relationship between employer branding and employee retention (Gilani & Cunningham, 2017; Wilden, Gudergan, & Lings, 2010). In the present study, an attempt has been made to explore the impact of employer branding on employee recruitment and retention. A comprehensive literature review of previous studies on this topic was conducted, in an attempt to understand the influence of employer branding on each aspect of recruitment. For this purpose, concepts from signalling theory, person-organisation fit and social identity were considered. Careful analysis of previous studies reveals that employer branding has an impact on an organisation's ability, not only to recruit, but also to retain, desired employees. Further, the organisations which are able to successfully project their images as potential employers of choice are bound to reap benefits in the long run.
