There are countless reasons why recruiting a person under the age of 25 could be beneficial to the success and growth of your business. As a job agency in Basingstoke, we’ve recently been reminded of the benefits of this yet again.
Spring is a time for new beginnings and you’ll not only be opening a window to a blossoming new career for a promising young candidate, they’ll bring you a refreshing dose of enthusiasm and engagement – not to mention a whole host of new ideas and the very latest skills. They’ll also create a sustainable talent pool for the future – a strong asset for any business.
Yet, despite having so much to offer, a common misconception still lingers in the air that the younger among the working population are somehow desperate for work experience.
Depending on the economic climate in the time we began our careers, we might project the idea that under 25s are willing to do anything to get their foot in the door in their desired industry. Indeed, we might make all sorts of subconscious assumptions based on age.
For example, under 25s won’t care about benefits like flexible working as much as those who are older and potentially more likely to have childcare commitments…
Friends and a social life can take a back seat if someone under 25 is truly keen to get their foot on the first rung of the career ladder, can’t they?
Salary is all that really matters (especially for university students with debts to pay off)…
The truth is, as we discussed in our recent blog about the importance of having a plan B, it’s a much more candidate-led job market than ever before.
Young people are entering the workforce with highly sought-after skills, up-to-the minute tech savviness, and crafts honed by apprenticeships, not to mention valuable experience gained on placements and during internships. With unemployment at a low, it’s these young candidates that are calling the shots. And they’re looking for more than just a decent pay packet…
Whilst appreciating that every potential employee will have their own unique drivers and barriers when it comes to accepting a job, there are a few things that are likely to appeal to younger workers…
These factors will improve the morale and productivity of your whole workforce, not just attract the under 25s – so how can you take a fresh look at your business today and inject some new energy into the way you do things?
