Our 2011 research report covering graduate career and employer choice. Graduates tell us that they struggle to differentiate between employers and what they have to offer. We look at how organisations can increase their chances of hiring and retaining the best graduates. Read our report and use its findings to help inform your graduate attraction, recruitment and engagement strategies.
Building on our first Gen Y report, this report looks specifically at the differences and similarities between Gen Ys in 12 Asian countries compared with the UK and the rest of the world. This is especially useful information for anyone with a global role or with specific responsibility for recruiting and retaining Gen Y talent in Asia. Gain valuable insight into the needs of your Gen Y workforce worldwide.
One of the first global research reports into Generation Y, our research conducted in 2008 asks 2521 Gen Ys what they want from work and covers how to attract, engage and motivate Gen Ys, as well as dispelling a few myths about their loyalty to employers and how they like to learn. Learn more about what your Gen Ys need and expect, to help them thrive and excel in their work for you.
We asked 137 Gen Ys and Gen Zs how they use social media, and specifically how they use it to search for a job. We discovered that the key to effective social recruiting is to know what social media sites GEN Y and Z will use for their job search, what they want to know, and how they want to interact with you via social media. Use our findings to inform your recruitment campaign.
Our free-to-download Position Paper explores the latest generational diversity issues now being faced by organisations, with five generations of employees in the workplace. It gives an enlightening overview and provides a useful check-list to assess how well your organisation is coping with this demographic shift. The Paper explains why and how the generations are different and looks at three key leadership challenges, and the opportunities they present, in more detail. We’ve identified these to be: (1) Managing the expectations of the Millennial Generation; (2) Making the most of your older Baby Boomer workforce; and (3) Leveraging diversity by enhancing cross-generational team work.
