Recruiting Digital Natives: Will You Attract the Leaders of the Future with Moth-eaten Practices? That's Risky Business!
SAN BRUNO, California - August 10th, 2015: How much do you really know about the consumer habits and expectations of the digital natives' generation? People aged between 19 an 35 represent 35 percent of the work force today according to numbers provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Meanwhile, the labor force aged 35 to 55 represents 42 percent of the employed population and people older than 55 represent 22 percent. The stakes are high.
What do you need to do to effectively attract the demographics of the future? The answer is simple: 1) take stock of the reasons why the current fundamental intergenerational "disjoint" isn't going away, and 2) realize that you need to adapt your antiquated candidate attraction processes to what digital natives expect.
