Tomorrow's Top Talent Will Crave Interaction And Dialog, Reject Intrusion


Young as the Millennials may be in the labor force, their impact is already making waves. Their push toward independence will shape the coming generations and the increasingly more contingent nature of talent.

• Future talent born from Gen Z will reach unsurpassed levels of mobility and demand socialized communication vehicles to support their nomadic lifestyles.
• They want interaction and dialog but not intrusion.
• Successful recruiting will require honesty and confidence.
• The talent of tomorrow will not be enticed to jobs that demand office presences or static schedules.

This article is an excerpt from our eBook "The Future of Talent in the Contingent Workforce". If you want to learn more on this topic, then please download our eBook.

Attracting the talent of tomorrow

The online staffing platforms of today will become the primary recruitment tools of tomorrow as talent collectives. The members of each unique online talent marketplace share common skills, goals, motivations and behaviors. Integrated social media tools will be prominent, standardized functions for facilitating all interactions. As talent transforms, we will likely witness the rise of a passive workforce, defined by evergreen job orders, the development of virtual candidate benches and redeployment of known former employees in supertemp roles.

Capturing the interest of our future talent will require piquing their attention, keeping them engaged and presenting an offer alluring enough to win them over without breaking the bank. Success in online “cold calling” through social networks requires a great deal more than a fearless attitude, stamina and ability to post messages; it requires preparation, a deep understanding of branding and unparalleled expertise in the best practices of sourcing -- the world in which staffing partners will live and thrive as curators between talent and employers.

Staffing professionals know how to promote the job and convey its exceptional qualities. The work must come across as intriguing and compelling as possible to sell the candidate on the job. Staffing experts are adept at creating performance profiles that define the job – its rewards, opportunities and challenges. Hiring managers will no longer have the time to conduct exploratory interviews and pore over resumes. And as consumers become direct buyers of contingent talent, they may not understand all the nuances involved in the hiring process. Engaging a skilled staffing curator will demystify the process and allow companies to build a virtual bench of all-stars to fill critical needs as they arise. Staffing curators know how to instill knowledge and an accompanying sense of confidence in describing jobs to the passive candidates of the future. They understand the unique differences in sourcing, assessing, recruiting and hiring processes for this top talent.

Talent collectives

• Staffing curators will provide collectives with meaningful, relevant and engaging content to keep the interest of members as prospective talent for buyers.
• Staffing curators will facilitate interactions between talent collective members that include discussions, client and product reviews, criticisms, suggestions and the otherwise free exchange of ideas. For buyers, email blasts and notifications will be ignored by members of the collective. Anyone who is hiring will need to become a part of the interactions. Demonstrating knowledge, a compelling offer and creativity will earn respect and win the day.
