SHIFT BLOG SERIES: LESSONS FROM #ROSEALLDAY IN SHIFTING YOUR EMPLOYER BRAND PERCEPTION

Ahhhhh, summertime. Summer means different things to different people. Vacation, pools, sun, boats, short-sleeves, a nice glass of rosé on the porch...On that last one, I never thought I’d say this, but rosé has recently come to be a staple in my summer repertoire. I know summer has arrived when I pour my first glass of the blush pink wine.

Rosé has gone from tacky to tasteful. It’s become chic, modern, and classy.  At its core, rosé is the same old product, but with a totally different vibe. Was there some sort of strategy behind all of this, or was it luck? While a pinch of serendipity plays into most cultural phenomena, there is often something more behind it.
