Employee branding à la Ikea05 Jan

I’ve already blogged about Ikea’s brand expressed in a single image. And here’s a video which communicates Ikea’s brand in a video.

I discovered this video on the blog of Thomas Otter, VP for Research at Gartner. It summarizes a story of how Ikea went about hiring 280 staff for its new store in Australia, in a very original, and low-cost way.
