In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, businesses face new challenges in establishing their brand identity and creating a cohesive visual representation.

For ProMark, a Danish software company, the transition from product sales to cloud-based solutions required a fresh approach to branding. 

In an era dominated by social media and online interactions, establishing trust and forging connections have become crucial for businesses. Negative reviews and feedback can significantly impact a company’s reputation, making it essential to showcase professionalism and reliability. Employee portraits provide a unique opportunity to humanise a brand and create a sense of authenticity. While traditional branding methods often revolve around products, ProMark understood that employee branding could serve as a powerful tool to connect with all stakeholders.

An overlooked opportunity

While product-based companies have a tangible object to serve as a branding focal point, software companies face unique challenges. As software sales shifted from physical boxes to downloads and cloud-based solutions, a new approach to creating a cohesive brand identity became necessary.

One often overlooked opportunity for branding lies in the portrayal of employees. Employee portraits offer a chance to showcase a company’s culture, values, and professionalism to customers, partners, and remote colleagues. Through standardised photography techniques, effective communication, and respect for privacy, ProMark recognised the potential of employee portraits in strengthening their identity and brand.

Unlocking the power of employee branding in an international landscape

The argumhas been two dimensional for ProMark due to the fact that employee branding offers benefits to tents for employee branding, he company and its employees, both underscoring the mutual advantages and positive outcomes for all stakeholders involved.

By treating all employees equally and including them in the process, ProMark created a shared identity that transcended geographical boundaries. Through standardised photography techniques, effective communication, and respect for privacy, ProMark ensured that every employee portrait reflected the company’s values and message.

Recognising the long-term benefits of employee branding, ProMark integrated employee photography into their onboarding process. By capturing professional portraits of all new hires from day one, ProMark emphasised their commitment to building a strong corporate identity and made employees feel valued as active team members.

An often overlooked branding opportunity lies in showcasing employees

Previously, ProMark would engage a local photographer every other year to capture professional images of the management and sales teams. These photos were used in presentations and on their website. However, in 2019, ProMark started collaborating with Eikonice to process employee portraits for internal newsletters. In 2022, they organised a company-wide photo event during a major meeting, where all employees were professionally photographed.

A new visual language

As part of their rebranding efforts in 2022, including a new website and updated visual language, ProMark entrusted Eikonice to handle their new design guidelines for employee portraits. Going forward, employee photography became an integral part of ProMark’s onboarding process, ensuring a consistent and compelling representation of their team. By providing a platform that enabled uniformity in photography, setups, and backgrounds, Eikonice facilitated a cohesive visual identity across the company. Efficient communication and the implementation of design guidelines ensured that every employee portrait aligned with ProMark’s values and brand message.
