You're measuring wrong employer brand metrics! #employerbranding   #recruitment   #recruiting   #branding  
Brand is one of those business concepts that is difficult to define, much less measure. Employer brand is no different.

Regarding Innopinion, today we've just received some wonderful - amazing even - news.... But we'll only tell you Monday!

During Monday we will actually be sharing a LOT of news about Innopinion, what we've been up to during summer. We just might be sharing information about products & services, clients, financials, resellers, technology, charity, Sweden, Finland, Indonesia, Australia, Ireland, awards, public appearances, royalties, ministers, presidents, or at least some of and something related to the before mentioned Exciting times!

Remember to also read news media carefully, you might spot some familiar names there. I would recommend to check out media such as Kauppalehti, Talouselämä and/or Markkinointi & Mainonta, Kaleva, and perhaps some Int'l media as well. Stay tuned!
