We talk to Auckland-based company Preview Me to discuss what millennials want from employers
Key Media is hosting the inaugural Millennial Workforce Summit at the end of May. The conference as the name suggests is focused on how to attract, engage and retain an increasingly mobile millennial workforce.
A fantastic line-up of speakers will discuss how to become an employer of choice for millennials, how to create a workplace of the future, how to drive workplace innovation and how to remain relevant.
Register for this event at Auckland’s Pullman Hotel.
NZ Adviser talks to James Farquhar of Preview Me about what millennials and Gen Zs are looking for from employers.
How important is a company’s employment brand? Especially in the climate of #metoo, the Times Up movement and general sexual harassment cases being brought to light in New Zealand workplaces.
Companies need better alignment between recruitment and marketing. Talent attraction is becoming a bigger piece of the recruitment stack for employers to consider and it’s easy to get right.
Employers that are a part of something bigger than themselves will almost certainly pull in more applicants. Brand is absolutely massive – it’s what attracts talent in the first place. The way companies recruit and portray themselves helps determine the talent that turns up at the door
Promoting the company message especially through a strong social presence – being present and active through social media and creating awareness of what’s going on in your company, helps talent get a better understanding.
The underlying metrics are wrong for what a ‘great candidate’ looks like. If you don’t like B averages or don’t want to hire someone with more than four jobs in five years you cut a big chunk of your market out. Using video early will help a lot. Candidates at present are still only able to use CVs as a representation for most companies, videos are only used if the company requires it.
