I think this generation [Millennials] is really misunderstood. And I don't know that it is as complicated as we all make it.
Cary, North Carolina (PRWEB) October 27, 2014
Ryan Carfley, Managing Partner at Personify, was invited earlier this month to sit down with Bryan Hamilton, the publisher of the Triangle Business Journal, and Erin Spencer from RPG Solutions to discuss talent in the Research Triangle region of North Carolina.
Just a few of the topics that were highlighted at the roundtable include the role of social media in recruitment, recruiting trends in the Triangle, the significance of work/life balance and the unique role that Millennials play in the workplace today.
“I think items like salary and job title are not nearly as important to them (Millennials) as believing in their products,” Carfley said during the meeting. “They’re socially aware. Brand is critically important to them. They’ve done their homework. And I think when you start talking about the blurred nature of work/life, we view that as an advantage. I think when they do believe in what they are behind, they are working tirelessly to that end.”
For the last three years, Triangle Business Journal has ranked Personify as the number one Executive Search firm in its annual book of lists. Additionally, in 2010 and 2011, Personify was recognized as one of the fastest growing privately held Executive Search firms in the United States.
Carfley said he greatly appreciated the opportunity to share his insight with Hamilton and Spencer on how companies, particularly in the Research Triangle Park, can engage with a talent pool and workforce that is increasingly replete with Millennials.
“A big challenge for employers is understanding how to engage, attract and retain the next generation’s workforce. Millennials make up 80 percent of our team at Personify, and turnover is virtually nonexistent. That makes us uniquely qualified to identify, engage and attract talent for our clients and for our firm,” Carfley said.
“With the high concentration of universities in the Triangle, this is a hot spot for innovation and highly skilled workers. Personify is playing a big role in the state of hiring in the Triangle based on the fact that our individual recruitment search practices are built on RTP’s foundation – science, technology and construction. This is a very business-friendly region.”
