For Employers & Brands

OutBüro realizes that no one is perfect. Therefore no employer/brand is perfect. But we can all strive to do good and grow. Let’s grow together

Allow OutBüro to help you shine no matter where you are on your journey and help you rise to amazing – to delight customers, employees and investors.

LGBTQ Employee and Candidates

Despite the necessity of building an employer brand, studies indicate that not enough has been done to harness its potential. A 2019 survey of 688 U.S. employers revealed that less than half of companies have an employer branding strategy. More than 1 out of 5 employers said they were “unsure” about the efficacy of their branding efforts. Even worse, 24% said that they have never heard of employer branding!

  • The combined buying power of LGBT adults in the U.S. is $917 billion and rising! (Source: Witeck Communications 2016)
  • LGBT men and women spend 35% more time online than their heterosexual counterparts (Nielsen 2015)
  • LGBT households make 10% more shopping trips than the average US household (Nielsen 2015)
