Whether you want to admit it or not, your workforce is changing. Even if you aren’t noticing major changes now, they will be coming soon. With baby boomers nearing retirement, the oldest millennials about to turn 40, and the next generation entering the workforce, not much can remain the same when it comes to your staffing solutions. How do you handle this changing workforce moving forward?
Focus on diversity.
The current workforce evidence shows the more diversity you have on staff, the more your team can lead you to new innovation. Diversity isn’t just about the cultural makeup of your employees, but the diverse way of thinking that brings new ideas and creativity to the forefront of industry. By focusing on diversity, you open yourself up to new possibilities.
The millennial majority.
The oldest millennials are nearly 40 and that is really changing the game. While many baby boomers and Gen-Xers perpetually assume that millennials are immature and young, their force in the modern workplace has been a steady wave for more than a decade now.
Global expansion of talent.
The workforce is expanding outside of our borders as well, and how businesses embrace that change will leave a lasting effect on the country as well as success in the marketplace. Consider what it’s like to hire and work with a global workforce. This can be working with companies in other locations, contract or location independent individuals, or bringing workers to your doors.
Impact on corporate culture.
There are other considerations such as the expansion of automation and the desire for better work/life balance that need to be considered for their impact on overall corporate culture. For example, caregiving has long been seen as a barrier to employment, but the culture of the workforce is changing to embrace caregiving as an important aspect of life and not a mark against someone’s ability to perform their job.
