Victorious Secret: Attracting Gen Y in Your RPO Model

Victorious Secret: Attracting Gen Y in Your RPO Model
October 25, 2012 at 12:30 - 1:30 PM ET
Doug Douglas, President(DX2 Consulting)
So, maybe you’ve had your RPO model running for a few years now and you are still approaching it in the same ways that you were 5 or 10 years ago. Or maybe you are considering a RPO model. You still depend on posting some ads on a job board, or a social media site, your corporate site, mix in an occasional career fair, and then you wait and see what you get – and what your RPO partner sends you. If this is your current sourcing strategy – or worse yet – if this is what your future sourcing strategy is, you’re in big trouble!

The secret to having a stellar workforce in the day/years to come lies in attracting and retaining the new workforce. They’re young, hip, technically savvy, and can multi-task like nobody’s business…it’s Gen Y. This is the first generation to grow up with the internet accessible to them every day of their lives. Because of this, they see the world, and react to it, in ways that are much more unique than past generations. So if your sourcing strategy is as I described above, you are going to have difficulty in attracting the best of this generation – and ultimately, your company will suffer as a result.

In this session, I’m going to give you the secret to victoriously attracting and retaining Gen Y workers. If you have a current RPO engagement, I would go to your provider and demand that they put together a plan that addresses the unique needs of this generation. If you are considering moving to a RPO model – that could still be a very wise and cost effective decision (especially in light of the secrets I’m going to share with you today). Just make sure that the provider you select has some idea of what the new recruitment strategies will look like to get you the very best talent.
Who Should Participate

What You Will Learn
1) How can I establish a RPO engagement that will attract the very best that Gen Y has to offer? 2) What changes will I need to make operationally to retain these Gen Y workers? 3) How will I be able to evaluate the ROI on my revamped RPO engagement?

The speaker sounded as if he were reading from a script not presenting a dynamic or engaging subject to an audience. Hard to listen to very difficult to be interested in the subject.
