NEW YORK, March 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Clarity Benefit Solutions, one of the leading HSA Companies, advises on attracting and retaining younger workers.
It may come as a surprise to many that millennials currently comprise the largest share of this country's workforce. These 18- to 35- year old workers now make up the largest share of the workforce Attracting and retaining them requires a vastly different approach than with other generations. The following are tips to recruit this younger generation as well as those who come after.
Promote a flourishing corporate climate. It is vital to offer a nontraditional working experience to the younger generation, as they are not interested in being a part of a typical office environment with a time clock and cubicles. They want to feel as if they belong to a community. As such, progressive employers will offer amenities such as nontraditional workspaces, team-building events, and off-site meetings that foster creative thinking and productive relationships.
Offer an amazing benefits program. The younger workforce wants the ultimate in benefits. While health insurance, raises, and bonuses are important, flex time is top-of-mind. The younger generation wants to not only have the ability to work from home, they want to be able to have additional time off. And, although they may be young, they are already thinking about retirement options.
Foster a mentorship program. While a traditional workplace mentor, where an older colleague teaches a younger colleague, isn't a new concept, millennials and their peers want to give back and provide feedback to their mentors.
Utilize modern recruitment methods. Employers who want to reach new talent should look beyond newspaper ads and word-of-mouth, such as a strong digital presence, a relationship with college career centers, and websites like LinkedIn.
Provide health and fitness initiatives. There is a multitude of offerings employers can offer the younger generation to attract and retain them. Paid gym memberships, a lunchtime yoga session, healthy lunch items, and entrance to activity- and sporting-related events are just a few examples.
Ease financial worries. Younger generation workers seek security and stability, especially in light of the financial struggles their parents experienced while they were growing up. Offer financial education webinars and workshops to provide them with peace of mind, which will reduce any stress they may be experiencing.
