Within the recruitment industry, Selective Recruitment is clearly aware of generational differences and thereby we focus on sourcing the right candidate for the appropriate job type through multi-faceted sourcing strategies.
These sourcing strategies draw from understanding the Silent Generation who are loyal, hard-working, detail orientated employees and who possess emotional maturity. Right through to the Gen Z who are capable of processing information quickly, tech oriented and are less likely to be team orientated.
The approach Selective Recruitment takes with each generational group is to assess what appeals to them in terms or their needs want expectations.
When Selective Recruitment reaches out to the Boomer generation we make note of their need for titles, status and salary. Selective Recruitment is, therefore, aware that the Boomer generation likes to stay ahead of their peers in terms of material possessions.
With the Gen X, Selective Recruitment focuses on placing this group in an environment where they can develop their personal and professional skills and have clear growth and learning opportunities. Selective Recruitment is aware that the Gen X believe that money is not everything and that a work-life balance is optimal.
Selective Recruitment understands that the Gen Y have a strong sense of self-worth and will not sell out to the highest bidder. Selective Recruitment knows that Gen Y wants to feel that within the job environment they have a chance to make their mark in the world and that “not any old job will do”
