Indigo had set a 2017 goal of building a talent brand given their company’s fast growth and need for in demand talent across sales, engineering, and agriculture.
From our first conversation with Indigo, it was clear that they were interested in sharing an authentic view of working at their company directly from the mouths of their employees, in addition to having a robust tool set where they could accurately measure the results of their efforts.
