Goal: 1,000+ new hires in 4 distinct markets: America’s, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East, all while creating a singular employer brand with cross-cultural appeal.
Before partnering with SPLICE, internal corporate co-branding efforts resulted in less than desired results. The existing career site had a 60% drop-off rate within the first 2 minutes and 97% of visitors only viewed the first page.

Career Site Content
SPLICE created a global employer brand strategy with an emphasis on unified messaging, employee engagement, and a positive candidate experience. One key deliverable was the design and release of a responsive, mobile-optimized career page with a CRM component for talent communities.
Preliminary data revealed the local candidate pools perceived Panasonic as “large,” “structured,” and “corporate.” In reality, Panasonic Avionics’ culture was much more personal than that. Our teams developed an authentic message that communicated the employer brand of “entrepreneurial mindset, mixed with a history of innovation and achievement.”
The recruitment strategy included several campaigns, hashtags, themes, and a campus recruiting plan. It also utilized employee-generated content – engaging employees and their personal networks while boosting referrals. Finally, our team designed and co-managed Panasonic Avionics’ social media accounts, including Facebook and Twitter.
An employee ambassadors program was designed for social media sharing and creating social content, to be used by recruiters during campus visits and key recruiting events. Our team trained the global recruiting team (20+) how to successfully utilize employer branding techniques.
HIRING GOALS WERE EXCEEDED BY 40% WITHIN 3 MONTHS.
