Varying Degrees The Dangerous Truth About The Global Emerging Workforce
Future Talent • 26m
For all the amorphous content and abstract conversations around the rising ubiquity of “Gen Z” at work, the fact of the matter is that in actual practice, campus and new graduate recruitment is often among the most overlooked and under-resourced strategic functions in talent acquisition.
This is nothing new - employers have long treated the emerging workforce and entry level employees with something approaching hiring hubris, the historical surplus of college graduates (both recent and impending) has long exceeded employer demand for entry level positions.
Data suggests, however, that the pendulum is perceptibly, and perhaps permanently, shifting, the result of a perfect demographic storm of steadily declining workforce participation, plummeting enrollment and graduation rates at postsecondary institutions in both the UK and the US and the proliferation and relative popularity of non-traditional, “gig” and freelance work arrangements among younger workers.
As a result, in the post pandemic world of work, entry level hiring and new graduate recruitment has become more cutthroat, competitive and costly for employers across markets, verticals and sizes. With experienced employees turning over at historical highs, the direct and indirect cost of acquiring skilled and professional level workers is forcing many businesses to reimagine, redevelop and reinvent their approach to entry level hiring and emerging workforce development.
This presentation will take a deep dive into the new world of graduate and entry level hiring in the US and the UK, and what employers on both sides of the pond need to do know to compete for, and win, their top talent of tomorrow, today.
Whether you’re looking at CVs or reviewing resumes, or whether you’re looking at colleges or Unis, we’ll explore the seismic shifts in the global graduate and entry level recruitment landscape, emerging best practices and real world strategies and the newest tips, tools and tricks of the trade.
