What is an EVP?

An employee value proposition (EVP) essentially defines what employees can expect in return for the effort the employer expects them to put in at work.  It articulates the tangible characteristics of work such as pay, benefits, rewards and what the employee will be provided with in terms of training and resources to do their job.  It also defines the intangible, such as the working environment that is influenced by the values and culture of the organization.

Biggest achievement:

One wouldn’t want to blow one’s own trumpet!

I’ve been doing this since 1980 and in that time I’ve been lucky enough to work with some great people (both clients and colleagues). Some have been less so – you know who you are!
