Recruiting the Generation After the Millennials


Raised during the financial fallout of 2008 and knowing only a world with the internet, will the generation to follow the Millennials change the way we recruit?

Before the detractors grab their pitchforks over yet another discussion of generational differences, let’s agree that it’s not about age brackets but how the landscape of work itself that has changed so drastically.

Much like those that preceded us, the emerging workforce would like security, would like to work for a company they believe in, and intend on being loyal. Yet all these may mean different things from yesteryears workers in today’s workplace.

The landscape of work has changed so much that a career for life is all but extinct, and even having a permanent job is losing favour with the growth of a gig economy and an attractive contract market.
