Last week, we covered ‘quiet quitting,’ employee engagement, and other trends impacting the ability to keep workers. Gen Z and Millennials are not only leaving jobs but also being very selective about which jobs are attractive. The Wall Street Journal reports that these generations are screening out jobs that use some popular catchphrases in their recruitment advertising.
Phrases like ‘fast-paced environment’ and ‘family-like environment’ are being decoded, perhaps improperly, by applicants.
If you’ve been around a while, you remember that Gen X pioneered work-life balance. Millennials are of the age where their children require more time, similar to Gen X 25 years ago. Gen Z is now entering professional life and looking for mentoring and growth, not a burnout situation.
You probably know who is engaged in your organization. Your colleagues refer to them as high-performers. But can they lead and develop others so you can retain workers? Getting leaders and mentors identified and deployed may be the only viable option.
Valid assessment helps you identify the talent that can lead and mentor. It also enables you to understand which jobs best fit each employee and does it fast. This insight guides more people to a long-term relationship with your organization.
Compare a person’s cognitive abilities, behaviors, and interests to high-performers in any or all of your positions. The more they are like high-performers, the more likely they will thrive in the role. Check out our sample PXT Select™ Multiple Positions Report.
