The world’s leading brands have most highly engaged employees. That’s not a coincidence. StudentBoard On Campus… On Brand… On Board…
ThisCity has built a leading HR solutions team which includes Global Diversity Practice and Graduate Solutions. Some of the world’s leading employers rely on us to attract, screen, recruit, retain, engage, develop and help align with their business strategies.
Talented people, smart formats, original ideas, compelling films.
Branding & Design
We’re not hung up on the medium. There’s more than one way to be creative. Whether the platform is online or offline, film, advertising or events, it’s the message and the implementation that can make a highly effective communications campaign.
Employer Branding & Marketing
The world’s leading brands have most highly engaged employees. That’s not a coincidence. Companies want their brand to work as hard inside their company as it does in their market-place. ThisCity helps clients bring their brands to life internally through employee communications. Attracting and retaining the right talent has never been more important. Most successful organisations understand that building an effective employer brand is a central part of a successful human resources strategy and, by extension, a vital contributor to organisational success.
The right employer brand can make your organisation a magnet for top talent, attracting and engaging the people that will deliver your brand and enhance your reputation. And the converse is also true. Difficulties in attracting high-calibre people, high employee turnover and a damaged reputation can all result from a weak or inaccurate employer brand. ThisCity helps leading organisations develop, define and articulate employer brands that support corporate strategy, build aspiration and sustain loyalty.
Plugging graduate recruiters directly into a global university network of their choice, StudentBoard ensures students engage with employers’ brands on campus through strategic student to student marketing using multiple online and offline platforms.
Whether you are developing a social media strategy, increasing brand presence or looking for insightful and targeted research for your graduate recruitment campaigns, StudentBoard will tailor and deliver each approach differently to suit your needs and those of the students – we understand not one solution fits all. StudentBoard will deliver the right messages, use the right processes and attract the right students directly to your door.
Provides support for employers in the attraction, recruitment, development and retention of interns, graduates and post graduates, (including MBAs). We specialise in the financial and professional services sector with operations in London and New York with considerable global reach and experience. And what really distinguishes Graduate Solutions from other outsourced providers is the unmatched knowledge and expertise of our team and the scalability of our model. Whether you require support with administrative processes such as screening or pipeline management, or whether you need consultative assistance with campus attraction or selection and assessment, we are here to help. Some of our clients delegate a specific part of a campaign to us, such as screening volume applications, while others commission us to provide a full service solution: from campus attraction strategy and website design through to assistance with on-boarding and training programmes. Importantly, we operate as a silent or (white label) partner, working as an extension of your HR team and provide a service that is seamless both to candidates and to internal stakeholders alike.
Where clients wish to engage a temporary or cyclical workforce within HR, whether that be for graduate recruitment, lateral hiring or shared services – we provide managed on-site staffing solutions. Typically organisations engage these services where permanent headcount is restricted and/or they wish to maintain flexibility of team size throughout the course of the year. At a number of clients we provide ‘on-site’ staff, who are payrolled and employed by our agency. We work closely with clients to both evaluate and select these staff and to create a desirable solution for clients in terms of performance and day-to-day line management. Flexibility is key and we pride ourselves on the quality of our on-site team and the personalised relationship we build with each and every team member sitting at a client site.
We conduct qualitative and quantitative research for our clients, including bespoke market research. Recent projects include; employee engagement surveys, communications audits, employee branding and recruitment surveys.
Diversity research: Having designed and implemented diversity surveys for global financial and FMCG firms, we have the capability to run the entire process – from survey design, through to analysis and interpretation.
Focus groups: These can be on any topic with selected groups. For example, employees vs. potential employees.
GLOBAL DIVERSITY PRACTICE
ThisCity has partnered with Global Diversity Practice, who are not your typical diversity consulting firm . We’re not built around training compliance or culture services like 99% of the other firms, but built around metrics, analytics and business results. We define ourselves as ‘a business strategy consulting firm focused on the bottom-line impact of corporate diversity initiatives’.
Yet, we also excel at providing next generation training, culture and engagement services aligned with and core to business integration. We have the unique advantage of having some former global diversity and communications executives as consultants.
- Strategy and Action Plan.
- Developing a Diversity & Inclusion Strategy is a critical step in ensuring organisations are able to raise awareness, engage and influence employees. We help develop strategies and plan actions to achieve the desired alignment with your business.
- Annual Communications Plan.
- Communication, or lack of it, is one of the most cited examples of barriers to embedding an inclusive culture. We work with businesses to develop all aspects of an energetic and engaging communications plan.
- Ensuring employees understand what the objective of the diversity strategy is; what each employee’s role is with respect to diversity; why diversity is important to the business; and how embedding an inclusive culture is aligned to strategic business objectives.
- Global Toolkits.
- Award-Winning Open Minds Training
- Diversity and Inclusion Awareness
- Gender Intelligence
- Women /Minority Leadership Development
Film & Production
Whether it’s documenting a fascinating day-in-the-life of your business, producing 3D motion graphics, interviewing the CEO, senior executives or recent recruits, ThisCity Productions aims to be creative, inspiring, engaging, and make beautiful looking films! We don’t believe in over-engineering a solution. We don’t shoot with a crew of twenty and three trucks of equipment. We do try to be unobtrusive, agile, zippy and informal. We get the very best out of our interviews. Spend a couple of minutes looking at our showreel and let us know what you think.
