Telling a Unique Story
Autocam Medical, a leading medical device manufacturer, identified talent acquisition as a critical driver for growth but struggled to tell a unified and unique story. We worked with leadership to clarify the brand position and message, then contextualize that to several target audiences—both internal and external. The resulting artifact was a website built to engage talent with a unique value proposition and clear messaging along with new positioning.

Equipping Talent for Growth

Ergonomic furniture accessories company ESI has seen multiple years of steady growth. Recognizing its sales reps are a cornerstone of past development, the company needed to level up and better equip salespeople for future growth.

In today’s economy, the pressure to change faster is ever increasing. Most organizations view growth through the lens of products and services. While a company’s offering is a critical piece, it can be an anchor that is rigid and slow to change. A long-term growth strategy needs to focus on talent. Leaders need teams to be agile.

Today’s worker is more mobile and global than ever before, making the competition for top talent increasingly fierce. Many leaders acknowledge that the right people are essential, but too often, they don’t invest in the employee experience. Attracting and retaining the best talent means going beyond old standards from the industrial era. From compensation to work style to location, people want more.

Today, leading organizations are rethinking how they attract and retain their best people. People want to get behind an organization that has a position and passion. To stay, they want to grow and contribute personally and professionally. The best talent expects the application process to be engaging and responsive.
Lorin Rebrand

Aligning Departments
Lorin, a top global supplier of anodized aluminum, sought growth by better connecting with a new customer group. The result was a holistic rebrand, much more than a look and feel. Lorin’s new position requires internal teams to work together in new ways, including sales, marketing, HR, IT, and operations. Agile companies need every team member to be on the same page. We developed a tighter value proposition and ideal customer experience, then tied those efforts back to the individual departments. These concepts and recommendations for HR messaging and experience reinforced Lorin’s brand value and identified activities for internal teams to move the brand forward in a cohesive manner.
