I can imagine 99% will say YES right away. But my next question is: “how do you know ? ” The truth is you don’t! or maybe you “kind of ” know because you survey them once or twice a year and look at the social media interactions (for those who use it!)
I find it quite strange that many of the good employers, cite that it is becoming more difficult to find, attract and hire the right talent, while at the same time talented professionals looking for a new challenge also seem adamant that such opportunities are rare or non-existent!
The current recruitment processes and tools are mostly cumbersome and outdated. They are not suitable for this day and age, and notably not suitable for generation Y, AKA the Millennials. Companies and Businesses are now competing for talent and need to sell themselves to the individuals as much as candidates selling themselves to the business (not literally !)
