In this competitive job market, you need to be able to recruit and keep the best of Gen Z employees, those individuals who are young, passionate, and tech-savvy. Know these tips for recruiting and retaining these workers:
- A cookie cutter approach won’t sell with these individuals. Instead, authenticity and person-centered recruitment is more likely to attract Gen Z talent.
- Young workers expect the recruiting process to be conducted predominantly online. Make sure your practices are cutting edge and efficient.
- Speak the language of Gen Z. Follow and engage with them on social media, obtain as much data about their likes and dislikes from their online presence, and craft a recruiting pitch around information you gain from their online personality.
- Be prepared to demonstrate how your organization’s value align with theirs. Provide peer coaching programs to ease these workers into your company’s culture.
