The Virtual Generation of Recruiting

Baby boomers are leaders and a generation of risk takers.  They were never afraid to put it all on the line for the greater good.  The boomers didn’t grow up having actionable data to rely on like we do.   Putting the puzzle piece together was more challenging but they did the best that they could with the insights that were available. It takes time to develop winning mechanics.

My generation (Generation Y, Echo-boomers) has turned into a generation of followers.  We are a group that is politically correct and don’t want to stand out in the crowd.  Think about Facebook.  How many followers do you have on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram?  Does it tickle your fancy when you get a new follower?  We are selfless.  We have a heart.  We care but we lack the driving force in guiding the direction for our industry.

 

Now, Millennials, they are something special.

The Millenial Generation is the new and improved version of the boomers and they are destined to create greatness in the American business landscape.  A generation of empowerment that is inspired to use mature tools and technology to make life easier, automate, and achieve greatness at half the cost and half the effort.  Our entire business community needs to invest in this generation and provide them with specialized programs that help them decide what micro service architecture works best for life’s design.  Get out of their way.  They were raised differently and think differently.  Let them decide how to put the puzzle piece together.  They won’t fail you.  Thanks to the inter-connectedness of data, technology, and people architecture – everything is changing….fast!

They say HR is dying but it doesn’t even matter.  Nor does it matter what generation you previously identified with because everyone has access in the virtual generation.

 

Now, Millennials, they are something special.
In my opinion, they are the new boomers and they are destined to create greatness in the American business landscape.  A generation of empowerment that is inspired to use mature tools and technology to make life easier, automate, and achieve greatness at half the cost and half the effort.  Our entire business community needs to invest in this generation and provide them with specialized programs that help them decide what micro service architecture works best for life’s design.  Get out of their way.  They are better than you.  They were raised differently.  They think differently.  Let them decide how to put the puzzle piece together.  They won’t fail you.
Thanks to the inter-connectedness of data, technology, and people architecture – everything is changing….fast!  They say HR is dying but it doesn’t even matter.  Nor does it matter what generation you previously identified with because everyone has a golden ticket into the virtual generation.

 

I propose a new way to work.  A better way.  A specialized way.
The virtual generation is here and we see this in proven marketplace technology, mobile apps, and the empowered desire for professionals to decide what, where, and how they can add value to the community they work in.
