Learn from Indranil Chakraborty, Business Storytelling Expert and Keynote Speaker on how story-telling can be harnassed to build a sustainable employer brand

What’s in
it for you?

As we begin to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a growing demand for individuals with a more unusual or heterogeneous talent profile, such that they combine soft and hard skills. Adding to it, there is an amplified focus on Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DIBs) for recruiters, with companies recognizing the importance and benefits of a diverse workforce. Further, throughout 2020 and now in 2021, employer branding, which plays a critical role in grabbing candidates’ attention, now tends to be characterized by empathetic and authentic story-telling, rather than boastings of flashy perks.

Keeping all this in mind, Indeed and People Matters have designed a two-day program to deep-dive into these two indispensable aspects which will change the very nature of hiring and recruitment for the new world of work.

DAY 01 - 25th August 21

Theme: Employer Branding & Talent Attraction

Keynote By Indranil Chakrabarty - The art of human-centered storytelling - Transforming a thought into a story

Every organization is carved out of a basic thought or vision on which its identity rests. However, conveying that thought as is or even just listing out a timeline with all the achievements and the history is not enough to compel a stakeholder. The narrative needs to be punctuated with nuances of human behavior and by characters who are easy to relate to or those who can really drive motivation in an identifiable time-space.

In this key-note, Indranil Chakraborty, Founder, Storyworks helps us join these dots and discuss how companies can harness the power of storytelling to build a great employer brand and attract new talent.
