Video: The Evolution of Hiring and Employee Motivators
By Mary Kay Rossi on May 15th, 2013
I had a glorious free 15 minutes last night to catch a TEDTalk, and it didn’t disappoint. Brian Halligan (of HubSpot fame) spoke about the evolving state of company culture and new ways to think about hiring employees, particularly millennials – defined as those born after 1980. This age group is the largest segmentation in the current working population, and these statistics will only continue to grow. So employers are now tasked with hiring within this demographic and providing incentives and benefits that will keep them there. And if you think their primary motivator is a pension plan, think again. It’s now important to also think about work hours, workplaces, motivation, and inspiration. Ironically enough, my watching this video comes on the heels of the end of the NBC show The Office, which has poked fun at cubicle lands, the monotony of office life, and straddling one’s dreams with the reality of needing a paycheck. Whether or not workplaces are shifting gears, there is a new reality to the idea of working.
If you have employees, may have them in the future, or are one yourself, check out the video below:
