It’s no secret that millennials are taking the workforce by storm. However, millennials crave different things from their jobs than the traditional workers of yesteryear. In an effort to help attract millennial talent, we have compiled a list of things that millennials look for in a company. Here’s what your company must have in order to lure in millennials.
Paternity leave, and family leave in general, is a hot topic these days as work/life balance, work/life integration, and other buzzwords float around that try to support Americans in their quest for both work and a family. Check out Christy’s full advice here in her work with Fit Small Business on everything you need to know about paternity policies as a small business owner or HR manager- from a policy template to how to administer one and what other business owners are doing.
The process of hiring new employees can be quite expensive, with the recruiting process being the most expensive aspect. With recruiting, there are both internal (i.e. internal cost of paying internal recruiters) and external (i.e. background checks, drug screens, etc.) cost associated. Well, below we have listed the top 5 FREE recruiting strategies.
One area we would like to focus on is how millennials need to train themselves in: Stress Management. Raise your hand if you thought college was stressful… and then you got to the real world and found out you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! Between filing taxes, paying rent, and truly really cooking for yourself without the help of dining halls or student unions, the real world can hit new graduates and young people like a ton of bricks.
Sometimes posting on jobs boards isn’t enough to help you find new employees. And then, paying to get your posting “upgraded” or sponsored on those boards can be cost prohibitive (and bring limited results in my experience). Never fear- through my work with Fit Small Business, we spoke to tons of resources who are small business owners like you and came up with 29 ways to find employees and compiled them here in this article.
Being a small business owner or startup, you might be wondering about maternity leave. It’s in the news a lot lately, and you may want to get a jump on getting a policy in place before an awkward situation arises. We agree with you on doing that! Check out Christy’s full advice on federal and state laws (yes, some states have laws!), how to write a maternity policy with a template, and the answers to other questions all about maternity leave.
