Millennials are taking over the workforce, and are projected to become 60 percent of it by 2024. Because of this truth, it’s essential that supervisors and HR managers learn to understand this generation. Some seasoned professionals consider Millennials to be infuriatingly self-assured and lazy, wanting to move up the corporate ladder without putting in the effort.

However, this generalization couldn’t be further from the truth. Millennials are willing to work hard, but they just have a different way of doing things, and reason for doing things, that should be understood by management.

JobMobile Atlanta panelist Donna Carroll discusses how the workforce of 2020 will impact the job market.

The workplace is in a state of change and flux due to many external and colliding factors. Company downsizing, reorganization, right-sizing and talent top-grading are buzz words that we are all too familiar with in our day-to-day lives. These organizational restructuring scenarios are prevalent today and there is every indication that they will continue to move and change at an ever faster rate in the years to come.

Additional factors such as retiring Baby Boomers, shifts from a service to technology-based workforce, and emerging trends such as work when and where you want, virtual workforces, and an anticipated shift of a larger concentration of variable workers all will have their effect. One thing that will remain constant is the need to have work completed when you need it, by quality talent, with domain or subject matter expertise.

Does your company’s recruitment process reflect a clear strategy? Ask yourself this: Did you select most of your top-performing employees by chance or by a carefully planned recruitment process? [TWEET]

The most crucial task of the Human Resources team is to hire great employees. But a great hire can turn into a big mistake if the candidate leaves within the first few months. Hiring the right people can be challenging and expensive, but keeping unfit employees is also costly. High turnover rates and low performance are signs that your recruitment strategy needs an efficacy evaluation. Here are few suggestions on how to improve your recruitment process to produce better candidate fits:
