Driving Force behind Growth
The Employer Brand is What People Say About You When Your Not There
For a brand to attract and inspire consider the “W” factor:
- why and who: the desired impact, the purpose and the target audience;
- what: its relevance in addressing expectations;
- wow: a passion that energizes and resonates with people.

Our Approach For Profitable Growth
We consider the brand as the company's foundation. Its DNA (culture, purpose, values...) and the promise made to its different target groups: customers, employees, partners, suppliers... its reputation which relies on the experience lived in contact with the brand.
Sustaining a strong brand requires an alignment between four components: people, technology-process, structure and finance. The perception of the brand depends on the emotional contact we have with it.
At Illico Hodes, we believe people make the difference. We rely on people to deliver distinctive employee experience that will provide a great customer experience and generate growth. The more aligned, engaged and passionate the employees, the more they reinforce the brand and deliver the promise to customers.
