The Evolution of Recruiting
The Evolution of Recruiting, a 4 part series
This is a 4 part series in the changes taking place in talent management and recruiting. New tools are available to recruiters that didn’t exist 5 years ago. The change in what candidates value has also shifted as we are dealing with a new generation fo workers. This led Frank Kalman to outline the changes that have been taking place. The ability to engage passive candidates is changing due to the social media sources that are available and frequently used by a growing number of people. By adding big data and mobile technologies to this mix, you now have a challenge to match the right people to the position. Targeted searches and candidate sorting allow you to select the best few instead of everyone.
One thing hasn’t changed and that is the ability to build relationships with your prospects. The growing labor pool in the US will be the so-called Gen Y, or the millennials. They will account for 80 million workers by the year 2020. So how do you build a relationship with this group? You need to understand what is important to them. They have less interest in a long term career with one company and are more interested in the experience involved with the job. Some believe this group may have as many as 14 jobs before they retire.
How does this impact your ability to attract them to your company? Simple you need to have the offer development and learning programs that will engage them. They are less concerned about the job itself and more concerned about what they will gain from the experience.
