Focusing our attention + efforts on recruiting, employing and retaining the next generation is where our businesses are going. So what do we need to know to hire amazing Millennial and Gen Z team members and create an environment and company culture where they thrive and bring immense value to your team?
On this episode of the Run Like Clockwork podcast, Adrienne talks with Danielia Barron about best practices when hiring the next generation of talent. Daniela is the newest coach addition to Team RLC and brings a wealth of experience from the non-profit and family camp world on staff + program development and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).
What does it take to get amazing talent into your company and keep them? And how do you compete with larger corporations when it comes to employing talent? Adrienne + Danielia really dig in!
Topics Danielia + Adrienne discuss on this episode:
Values + traits of next generation team members (Millennials + Gen Z)
What the next generation is looking for in a company culture
The importance of autonomy for Clockworking + the recruitment + retention of next generations
The benefit of practices that are centered on diversity, equity + inclusion
As a small business, it can be challenging or even impossible to compete with larger corporations when it comes to recruiting talent if only based on money. However, there are many things that rank higher than money for Millennials + Gen Z that can give you a competitive advantage: meaning, social justice, doing something that does good in the world, authenticity, autonomy, and flexibility.
