If you’re a professional interested in employer branding, you’re likely already super busy.

If you’re on the HR side, you already have prospects to recruit, employees to engage, and a company to keep happy.

If you’re on the marketing side, you already have leads to delight, analytics to filter through, and a changing digital landscape to keep up with.

Who has time to filter through the massive amount of content to find the best employer blogs worth following?

Hopefully, this article has done a lot of the work for you. I went through over fifty employer branding blogs and selected the best four options focused on how to do employer branding, and chose another four company career blogs to use for inspiration.

The top employer blogs

I used the following criteria to select the employer blogs highlighted below:

  • They had to be regularly updated over the past six months
  • Employer branding blogs: They had to have actionable, helpful articles that helped beginners and advanced practitioners alike
  • Company blogs: They had to demonstrate a unique approach to employer branding that could be replicable

I organized the results alphabetically by company name. If these resources are valuable, be sure to also check out the best employer branding Twitter accounts and GoodSeeker, a content marketing tool for employer branding.
