This paper addresses the concerns associated with talent acquisition and how employer brand can overcome some of them. Based on the literature review and supported with the first stage sequential mixed method exploratory research, the paper summarises and aggregates the results of a pilot study conducted on a section of prospective employees of India. The study contributes to the sparse academic and empirical work on employer branding. The empirical results are initial steps towards the development of a scale for measuring employer brand in a later stage. The current study will further facilitate development of the unique employee value proposition based on the person-need fit of talent. The research is based in an Indian setting which makes it all the more relevant in current economic scenario. The paper concludes with theoretical and practical implications followed by directions for the future research.
