The structure of the program
September 21-22
Module 1
10:00 - 18:00
Day 1

  • Forming trends in the modern labour market: the ‘hybrid’ format remains; professional isolation and burnout are on the rise, while engagement is on the decline; the ‘bring your whole self to work’ approach produces conflicts in teams; culture is established as a determining factor in the employee’s choice of company.
  • What is an ‘employer value proposition’ (EVP): structure, components, and features of ‘cascading’ from the corporate level to individual clusters of professions.
  • Consideration of the case of a significant change in EVP.
  • Features of EVP in different corporate cultures (Schwartz system — Basic Values Theory, Theory of Universals in Values).

Day 2

  • Necessary infrastructure in the company for the development of EVP: values and a certain type of culture; competencies / performance-based management; regular measurement of engagement and eNPS, etc.
  • Psychological contract and employee involvement: three types of involvement and correct work with expectations; the potential causes of low engagement.
  • The specifics of applying hygienic factors and motivators in stimulating performance; intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and why financial factors alone do not create strong or long-term motivation.
  • Case for working in groups: formation of EVP according to the given template of the EVP architecture, based on the real company case.



October 5-6
Module 2
10:00 - 18:00
Day 1

  • Performance climate in teams: the role of the manager and subordinates in different types of leadership; prevention and minimization of ‘toxicity,’ characteristic features of ‘toxic’ and effective managers.
  • Key influences on the employer’s reputation — external and internal; the role of perception of justice (procedural, interactional, distributive) on employees’ desire to stay in the company.
  • Guest speaker with a case of crisis work with a negative EVP.
  •  Working with EVPs externally — synchronization of EVP and PR efforts and the place of the employer brand in the reputational profile of the organization (and the very concept of a ‘reputational profile’).

Day 2

  • The specifics of EVP perception by candidates and employees from different cultures (Hofstede, Gelfand, Hall systems): attitude to productivity, time, leadership, teamwork, etc.
  • Crisis communications in case of problems with EVP: key risks, management involvement, troubleshooting.
  • Transactional analysis of relationships in teams: psychological positions (adult / children / mature) of employees and the manager and work with them. Resolving intra- and inter-team conflicts.
  • Case for working in groups: forced modification of EVP due to difficulties in the market / problems in the company / change of the business model.
