As society continues to evolve, so does the technological footprint within every segment of business. Specifically, within the hourly workplace and recruiting strategies, the tech footprint continues to deepen its presence. With innovations such as text-to-apply, social media, and brand distinction methods, organizations are neck-in-neck with attracting top talent.
I had the pleasure of hearing a great thought leadership webinar presented by two of my talentReef co-workers about Pro-Active Recruiting. The webinar was about tips, tricks and trends we see in today’s recruiting market. They started off with the best way to get quality candidates. They spoke about employee referrals and how a lot of companies would like to have their trusted employees recruit other team members to be a part of their culture. I was a referral here at talentReef from our CEO and other friends at the company, and I can also say that I have referred many other friends who have excelled and thrived here in our talentReef community. Managers wear so many hats with the day to day operations of the business, which makes them more likely to turn to a referral’s resume or application knowing they have a trusted word from a current employee that they will be a good fit within the company.
Today, millennials have now surpassed Baby Boomers as the largest living generation, and in the U.S., they represent the biggest segment in the workforce.
It seems Baby Boomers and Gen Xers are always focusing on Millennials, but now it’s time to include and embrace Generation Z. Millennials and Gen Z groups are taking over the workforce, and the four generations are all working side-by-side.
