New economy is bringing new rules and companies are starting more and more to understand the importance of hiring highly skilled and educated employees. But how to attract the people who are well aware of their importance and value?! The answer is elaborate and goes way beyond money. The X and Y generations are looking for more than just flashy titles and dental insurance. They are looking for purpose, they want to believe in the mission of the company and managers leading it. And they want to enjoy their time at the office. New generations are well aware that job is a huge part of their life and don't want to waste that time in an unhealthy and non-fun environment.
New technologies are a game changer and your company needs to adapt to those new rules. So, what do you need to do in order to make your company bloom? First, and foremost, you have to hire the right people. Hire for passion and commitment first, experience second, and credentials third. You don’t want to be simply a stepping stone on an employee’s journey toward his or her own (very different) passion.
