Human Resources doesn't easily come to the mind when you talk about branding. Instead, we think about sleek advertisements, campaigns, and instantly figure out logos that assure you value, quality and personality. Branding is no longer exclusive to the marketing department. HR professionals are also responsible in their roles as internal brand ambassadors. Let's have a look at five roles of HR.

1. Reward Programs and Communication

Benefits provision is one of the largest business costs for a majority of organizations. HR professionals must keep the  employees engaged in winning rewards and having a proper communication strategy. That's when secure employee communication and branding become key. It's important to reach staff through various communication channels- email, face-to-face meetings, department meetings, text messages,or on conference video calls.

Several innovations around Employee Retention also play a vital role.

For example, Zappos, an online shoe and clothing shop aims to serve the customers at their best. Apart from the well designed visuals and ad campaigns for brand building, they also focus on making the retail experience as amazing as possible. Thus by offering free shipping, and free returns, they deliver the fine class of customer service.

2. Onboarding

This is particularly true when procedures are inconsistent with the organization's approach to other aspects of the joining process. A dissociated onboarding process leads to unhappy hires.

A Coca-cola executive says, “If Coca-Cola were to lose all of its production-related assets in a disaster; the company would survive. In contrast, if all consumers were to have a sudden lapse of memory and forget everything related to Coca-Cola, the company would go out of business.”
