Millennials are a unique generation of workers and navigating that recruitment strategy can be tricky but rewarding. In this article, we will present some recruitment techniques worth considering.
It’s all about giving them a sense of purpose. If you can attach some level of social impact or purpose you will be see how Millennials can make a significant contribution in your organisation.
Millennials are purpose minded and socially aware. Not necessarily looking for something to pay the bills. The idea of doing something significant with their job is very important.
Opportunities for Growth
Growing and learning in their profession not just as an individual is a key area for millennials. Training sessions and options for professional development and support with the view of receiving a certification is something of interest and may well play a part in decision-making about a role, during the interview process.
The Social Aspect
They value transparent and authenticity and they usually want to see what’s like to work there. Social media plays a big role in this aspect as potential employees can see staff genuinely enjoying working with you and that it’s a great workplace.
Having a good reputation through word of mouth is a way to attract great workers, including millennials. Work-life balance and culture are very important and they are willing to commit to everything when at the office if they can balance that with enjoying life and spending time on their passions and the people that they care about most.
If your company aligns with this, you are onto a winner. Time is more productive if staff have outlets outside of work and have the time to enjoy them.
