Attract young talent
Young talent is scarce, which makes it all the more important that you, as an employer, know how to capture their attention. More and more internationals and Gen Z are entering the workplace. Who is this new generation? How do you reach them? And how do you make sure that they want to join your team?
Finding Gen Z
When attracting young talent, it is vital to understand their desires and needs. This generation has its own communication preferences, expectations regarding management styles, work mentality, ideas about office layouts, and career preferences. By demonstrating flexibility in terms of work location and hours in the job posting or during an interview, and emphasising a diverse and inclusive work environment, you increase your chances of attracting them.
Young talent seek a workplace that resonates with their desires and needs, they value a manager who is not only aware of these distinct needs but also actively works to accommodate them. Can your organisation provide this? If so, integrate it into your recruitment strategy.

Due to the tight job market, companies are eager for talent, leading to more frequent recruitment of individuals from all corners of the world. This not only presents opportunities, but also challenges. The right approach to this, begins already in the recruitment process. How do you conduct an interview?
