Posted by Allyson Edwards on Aug 30, 2017 12:00:08 PM

As we prepare for the Super Bowl, we all have a tough decision to make- which team should I root for?

The two teams playing in the Super Bowl are arguably the best two teams in the NFL this year. However, there is a lot of time, coaching, and leadership that goes into building a championship team.  

Behind all great teams is a well-thought-out strategic plan and leaders that have a proven methodology to attract, retain, and engage top players. 

The same holds true in the workplace, and a solid strategic plan starts with establishing your employer brand through mobile apps, social media, and career sites such as Glassdoor and CareerBuilder. These are just a few ways in which you can reach more individuals to expand your talent pool.
