The Employment Value Proposition (EVP) is the set of attributes that the labor market and employees see as the value they gain through employment in the organization. An effective EVP enables organizations to reach 50% deeper in the labor market to attract passive candidates and decreases annual turnover by 69%—but most CISOs do not know their organizations’ or functions’ EVP.
