So you want young leaders working at your company? You want fresh ideas, innovative strategies and the best of the best from top colleges across the country. Well, it’s not always about what they can offer you. Young professionals tend to thrive—and demand to work—in environments that are suitable for their needs.
Brazen Careerist offers way you can attract these young leaders to advance your business:
Upgrade your office with modern and ergo-friendly furniture. Gone are the days of executive desks and boardroom style chairs. Now, Gen Y employees want to feel comfortable in their workplace. More importantly, they want to feel healthy.
In the past, employees were required to sit for long hours at a time. Now, more and more studies show the health risks of sitting behind a desk for hours on end. These studies have created a need among savvy employees for ergonomic, modern office furniture instead of clunky leather chairs.
When a new recruit walks through your office to interview, make a strong first impression and show off your non-stuffy side through your office furniture: a treadmill desk, a standing desk or any modern design that makes work a little more fun, energetic and healthy.
Show potential employees you care for their well-being while at work. Your employment package will appeal to more Gen Yers if the workspace is modern and health-conscious.
Partner with local businesses to offer community-centric perks. Gen Y workers place a high value on work-life balance. This is particularly true with so many young families who have two household incomes or tight budgets. To help, recruiters and businesses can make deals with other businesses in the area, making life a little bit easier on their team.
