Case Study

Increasing share of voice in the HR market

DNA is one of the UK’s leading employer brand and employee engagement agencies - covering a range of well-known brands from corporate to SME. The agency was looking to grow brand equity and share of voice in the senior HR market and approached The HR World as a progressive ’new voice’ in the online publishing space. ​

  • Event Sponsorship
  • Sponsored Content

As one of the first commercial partnerships through The HR World, DNA was able to also include content from one of their clients JobTrain, which helped progress this long-standing relationship and move it to the next level.

"Working with The HR World as they began their commercial journey has helped us develop relationships both with existing clients as well as providing valuable exposure to new leads.

The thought leadership content produced for us by the editorial team has married up perfectly with more business-focused outcomes. HR World has proven it has secured at least two thirds of the senior HR market through their mailers and newsletters and we are looking forward to going on a prosperous commercially-beneficial journey in partnership."

Creating content strategy and delivering impact

Maru is a specialist HR and business change recruitment business, focused on the SME and mid-tier markets. Maru is a longstanding partner of The HR World and the collaboration has supported profile raising of both the business and founder Hannah Waddington.

The HR World was also pivotal in helping create and market Maru’s bespoke onboarding programme - known as Inplacement - with content and advertising on the site.

Events focusing on job descriptions, a roundtable with Henley Business School and an event with Cynthia Davis founder of Diversifying on inclusivity have taken place in collaboration with Maru.

"The business activity undertaken with The HR World has been crucial as I launched my business. From supporting with content planning and strategy, to producing some world-class content, we are grateful for their guidance and expertise throughout what could have been a very stressful time.

As a result of the collaboration, we were also able to develop a media and advertising strategy for our new product Inplacement. During this time Maru's business network in the HR space has embedded and significantly grown, thanks in part to the work we have done together."
