This course fills a huge void...it is obvious the recruiting process has been drastically disrupted.
Lehigh Valley, PA (PRWEB) September 24, 2015
One of the nation’s most progressive talent management firms, Success Performance Solutions (SPS) launched a new online course Recruiting Gen Y Blueprint (http://udemy.com/recruiting-gen-y-blueprint) to help small businesses reach, engage, and hire more qualified employees. It has been approved by Udemy.com and registration is now open.
“This course fills a huge void,” reports Ira S Wolfe, president and founder of SPS. “With over 86 percent of small businesses reporting few or no qualified applicants for positions they are trying to fill, it is obvious the recruiting process has been drastically disrupted. Sourcing and recruiting process that worked in the past are now ineffective. Business owners and HR alike are struggling to figure it out.”
During the 20-plus lectures, Wolfe encapsulates his successful Gen Y recruiting campaign approach with the acronym REACH.
“It’s simple,” warns Wolfe. ”If your campaign isn’t seen by enough people, you won’t get enough candidates to apply. But just reaching the Millennial worker isn’t enough. Employers need to engage them with a great first impression…and then continue the conversation during and after the application.”
Throughout the course, participants are reminded about the importance of engaging job candidates just like they engage customers. In addition to discussing the best sourcing sites including social media, Wolfe shares insights about how to improve the candidate experience as well as upgrading the employer-side of things - screening and vetting candidates.
Recruiting Gen Y itself is a collaboration between two generations. After meeting, Gen Y Consultants (https://www.linkedin.com/company/9498150) entrepreneurs Steve Boerner and David Gritz, Wolfe, a Baby Boomer, felt an immediate synergy and shared passion for the project. “We’re all extremely excited about this first venture and introducing our services to the business community,” says Wolfe. Together SPS and Gen Y Consulting produced this 90-minute series of lectures which includes insights from the seasoned recruiting and hiring veteran and the innovative perspective of two Gen Y businessmen. Topics range from the state of the current labor market to what are the best sources to reach qualified workers. The group plans to add more recruiting resources and update lectures on an ongoing basis.
By selecting the Udemy platform, Recruiting Gen Y is available on a wide variety of mobile and desktop devices. The requirements to participate are minimal and accessible to the tech savvy recruiter as well as the technology-challenged manager. The course consists of series of 2 to 6 minutes lectures.
