Best Practices for Hiring Gen Z and Millennials

“What are your favorite tips for getting Gen Z job applicants?”

Watch my short video to learn what works.  


The first strategy is to create or host your job application in a way that people can save their application as they work through it.

Why is this important?

Our research shows many members of Gen Z—and even Millennials—won’t start a job application online unless they know they can save their progress.

Many times, people don’t have all the information they need to complete the application when they start it. Being able to save it means not only are they more likely to start the application, but they are more likely to go back and complete it if they didn’t finish.

And if they have to set up an account to start the application, but don’t finish, you have their email, so you can re-market to them and ask them to complete it. This is especially important in a tight labor market.

This is just one simple strategy for driving more applications. I will be sharing more strategies in the coming months so stay tuned!

One new trend to pay close attention to that we are studying at CGK: Ghosting. This is what happens when an employee is hired, agrees to show up to work, but then never arrives on the first day of work. Yes! This happens. And right now, it is happening a lot and creating tremendous frustration for employers. At some point, the employer-employee dynamic will likely change and become more balanced, but for the foreseeable future, ghosting is likely to stick around—so we need to take action to get new hires to stick around, too!

I love working with repeat clients because I get to know their team, culture, challenges, opportunities, and strengths over a long period. Going into the details with clients and working with their teams consistently also builds momentum for action, buy-in, trust, innovation, and results across their organization.
