On my last article, I discussed the Top Five Attributes you need to look for in Next Generation leaders. This week I will talk about the 5 ways to attract new generation talent to your company.
In 1998, after a year-long study on the subject, McKinsey researchers declared that a “war for talent” was underway. In the years ahead, they said, organizations’ future success would depend on how well they could attract, develop, and retain talented employees–an ever more valuable asset in ever-higher demand. Although 1998 seems like a long time ago, this statement holds true in 2018. Although 1998 seems like a long time ago, this statement holds true in 2018.
So how can you win this war for talent? How can your company attract Top Performers?
New Generation Talent is looking for a sense of purpose. If the company’s leaders aren’t clearly and consistently communicating the company mission, it’s likely it won’t catch on to those who follow. Managers at every level must be able to sell their internal team on the mission, and each employee should have an in-depth understanding.
It is all too easy for employees to lose sight of why they come to work every day, or how they actually contribute. Not only does reiterating the company mission cause it to forever stick in the minds of those internally, but it also answers the “why” of the employee’s workday in and day out.
Business leaders need to understand the big picture behind the current business environment and how it will fundamentally redefine how their organizations operate tomorrow and the talent they will need to compete and drive innovation.
