New Way to Recruit and Hire the Younger Generations.

Recruiting and selecting Millennial and Generation Z job seekers must be different than it has been in the past. It is time to evaluate how you currently recruit and hire employees and identify what might need to change in order to keep pace and be in better position to hire this young talent.

Right now, the Millennial and Z generations account for about one third of the total labor force. This will only grow in the next decade and beyond as baby boomers retire from the workforce. These two generations have very different expectations when it comes to the world of work and the hiring process. Much of this generation has grown up with the boom in technology and use the internet for literally everything! It is important when hiring to be able to mirror these interactions to help engage these younger generations.

In this 45-minute session participants will walk away with the following:
1. Why a paradigm shift is needed in most companies’ application processes
2. An understanding of what Millennial and Generation Z applicants are looking for in an application process
3. How to recruit these generations like they want to be recruited
4. How to use video the correct way in the recruiting process.


Video-based Job Applications – A True Paradigm Shift in Hiring

Today almost 100% of companies still use a text-based application. Companies need to change this practice if they are going to compete for candidates in the future, especially if the candidates are from the millennial generation. While the process of posting a job and collecting application data is fine, the way it’s collected needs to change. Today a company has options.

Video-based job applications exist which create an interactive, video-based, experience for candidates that does more than just collect data. As applicants interact with the System they are getting information from the company and at the same time providing the company information on him/her. The company is able to provide their employee value proposition and actively recruit the candidate from the first second the candidate shows interest in a job.
In this 45-minute session participants will walk away with the following:

– An understanding of the difference between a video interview and a video job application.
– Pros and cons of using video techniques in the recruiting process (and yes there are cons)
– Why a paradigm shift is needed in most company’s application processes
– 5 Key benefits to using a video-based job application
