Sponsorship solidifies Element Three as the employer branding partner of choice for Powderkeg’s community of tech entrepreneurs, investors, and professionals.

Element Three, a full-service marketing agency that works across digital and traditional channels to solve business problems for clients who strive for market leadership, is proud to announce a strategic partnership with Powderkeg, a community of tech entrepreneurs, investors, and professionals across the United States. By teaming up with Powderkeg, Element Three will become the go-to agency for employer branding services among tech companies in Indianapolis and beyond.

“It’s easy for leaders to talk about their people being the company’s most important asset; far fewer are committed to the craft of developing, building, and scaling a world-class brand experience for their employees,” says Element Three President Tiffany Sauder. “Brands are used to spending truckloads of money to get the attention of the marketplace—and we are just beginning to understand how important it is to use brand to build employee engagement, loyalty, and ultimately shareholder value.”

Sauder continues, “A company’s employer brand should be based on a crystal-clear picture of an organization’s unbiased truth, yet most tech professionals don’t have the resources available to identify and craft that brand themselves. By aligning with Powderkeg, we can better provide these services to some of the most innovative and forward-thinking companies in the country. The Powderkeg community is pushing boundaries, and we are proud to be a part of it.”

Element Three’s employer branding services and process are designed to help organizations clearly, passionately, and uniquely answer the question: Why should prospective employees want to work HERE? To ensure employer branding is rooted in truth, Element Three conducts intensive research and audits gathering internal and external perspective. The final product often includes an Employer Value Proposition, Statement of Core Values, and Market Positioning. These core pieces also come with implementation strategy ideas across the entire employee engagement cycle, plus the creative expression of the internal brand.

“There’s an explosion of opportunity right now in the middle of the country. Fast-growing tech companies are emerging and offering great jobs, but it’s still really hard for them to find the right talent. That limits their growth,” said Matt Hunckler, CEO of Powderkeg. “The U.S. Tech Census showed us what tech professionals want, and we immediately recognized that most tech companies don’t have an employer brand aligned with that. Our members need a partner who’s a branding superhero. Element Three will help them build magnetic employer brands that attract top talent.”

To kick off the partnership, Sauder and Hunckler will host Powderkeg’s upcoming MarTech Madness pitch night on February 28th at The Vogue in Indianapolis.
