Xerox Europe: Maximising the employee value proposition

An employee value proposition describes what an organisation stands for, requires and offers as an employer in return for the skills, capabilities and experiences an employee brings to the organisation. Xerox has developed its EVP around five pillars of people management:

  • people – including senior leader reputation
  • work – including innovation
  • organisation – including brand
  • opportunity – including career development
  • reward – including compensation, health and retirement benefits.
