Reflection of Personal Values and Vision: A company's brand often reflects the values, vision, and personality of its founders and leaders.

As the company grows, these personal attributes become integral to its brand identity.

Authentic Advocacy
: Employees who are passionate about their work and are aligned with the company's values can become authentic advocates for the company.
