Recruitment has been one of the fastest and largest change agents in HR over the last decade. This change is driven by new technologies as well as forced by candidates who demand good recruitment experiences and even more fulfilling careers. As the tail end of millennials enter the workforce, an even more demanding, technologically savvy and obsessed age cohort, Generation Z, begins coming into the working environment. This means there is a second coming of recruitment evolution. Beyond just generations, we have other facets to consider – life stage, developing regions, global distribution, part time and contingent labor, mobility, and more.
All of these considerations lead to the question: are you set up for long-term recruitment success? At SuccessConnect Singapore, taking place September 8th and 9th, I will be talking about some of the forces that are driving change in recruitment, both known and those which are often forgotten and passed over. We will look at generational differences, what impact life stage has, and how environment and devices are shaping recruitment. Please join me in my session “SuccessFactors Recruiting: Overview and Roadmap” on September 8 at 2:05 p.m. to learn about and discuss how we can help you plan for and solve these challenges today and what is coming in the near future to further improve your recruitment. People are every company’s greatest asset, and successful workforce strategies start with recruitment!
