The annual HR competition aims at finding and awarding the best Hungarian employer branding practices.

BACKGORUND

Our client, Dreher Breweries Ltd. asked us to propose a programme at their annual DreherFeszt event to show the company’s employer branding values to the visitors in 2018.

TASK

  • To introduce the company as an employer at the 5th DreherFeszt event at Dreher Breweries in 2018.
  • To make employer branding part of the integrated brand experience for visitors.

CHALLENGES

  • The factory is only a festival location → the audience does not think of it as a workplace
  • The visitors go there to have fun at the concerts → we should not overemphasize HR messages at the festival
  • EB activity is not effective in the dark → EB communication is not effective during the evening concerts → recruitment activities should be held in the afternoon → the target groups should be invited to come earlier than the concerts start → good programmes and incentives
  • The programmes should be exciting for Dreher employees as well → programmes, preparations where they can introduce themselves

CONCEPT

CREATIVE PLATFORM

The company is more than a brewery: highly educated experts work at logistics, HR, marketing, sales, finance and other fields besides beer production. This diversity in work activities is not clear for the outside world. Let’s offer the visitors of the festival a chance to have a closer look at the real operation practices of the brewery and its unique corporate culture! Let’s involve Dreher employees in the activities so that the visitors can also become “insiders”! That is the purpose of the Dreher Inside programme.

DREHER INSIDE CAREER LOUNGE

The lounge was the central location of employer branding activities. Besides informal talks with Dreher employee ambassadors, different departments of the company like HR, marketing, sales, finance, production and logistics were introduced to the visitors with exciting interactive exercises. The programmes of the lounge were planned to fit well with other programmes of the festival. Dreher employees were deeply involved in the activities: different departments were involved in planning and executing the programmes. There were 30 Dreher employees coordinating programmes of the lounge all day long highlighting the brand essence elements of Dreher as one team.

COMMUNICATION

PRE-EVENT COMMUNICATION

Dreher Inside EB programmes were introduced as part of DreherFeszt events. The EB programmes appeared in 26 online programme ads during August 2018. Apart from this we had an intensive content-posting activity on our FB event page throughout of August. The FB page of DreherFeszt also connected visitors to the EB programme’s landing page.

 

LOCAL COMMUNICATION

Visitors of the festival were informed about the EB Lounge events at the entrance by hostesses, programme posters and leaflets. The EB programmes were constantly announced by the host of the festival on concert stage as well.

 

POST-EVENT COMMUNICATION

We shot 2 films in the Carrier Lounge. One of them is an Employer Branding video introducing the EB branding activities of Dreher. The film is available on Dreher’s YouTube channel. This film was released to the press after the event.
