Welcome to Lightness

    We’re a team of three individuals with varied backgrounds, based in three different locations and sharing one belief: that any company can afford to become a better employer. While Employer Branding has become one of the most common buzzwords of HR and recruitment, the idea itself is nothing new. People, whether they’re employees or candidates, talk about your company. It’s time to take control of this conversation. We believe no one can do this more effectively than yourself. Whether you’re in HR or recruitment, or a small employer without a dedicated Employer Branding team, we’re here to share simple tools and solutions that will help you make a difference in the following areas:


    Are you looking for someone to speak at your conference or event? We love sharing our knowledge and passion and we’ve spoken at a number of events in different locations. If you’re looking to add an international perspective to your event, we’d love to hear from you! We also regularly organise our own events, so we understand what it takes for one to be successful. We can help you organise and promote events in Poland to make sure you're successful from the very first one.


    Are you new to your function? Do you want to find out about new tools to support your work or learn to better use the ones at your disposal? If you're looking for simple solutions that you will be able to introduce to your work within days, let us help. We offer a variety of training sessions, individual or for your entire team. Anything from remote training using the technology that works best for you, to onsite training sessions delivered at your office.


    Is your Employer Branding strategy not bringing the results you’re looking for? Are you struggling to engage with your candidates? Does your career page put candidates off instead of encouraging them to apply? Let’s talk! We can help you figure out what isn’t working, so you can get back on track quickly. We offer both onsite and remote consulting services. If you're not sure what those are exactly, just get in touch and we can figure that out together!
