Millennials (a.k.a. Generation Y), defined as people born anywhere from 1980 to 1999, have access to technology, communications, and publishing that simply wasn’t available decades ago. As a result, they have demands for career and lifestyle that are often different than older generations.
To find out what it takes to draw in this highly sought-after community, we asked recruiters and anyone hiring young talent what they believe are the “must-adopt” recruiting techniques for hiring Millennials.
As the federal workforce nears retirement age, it is crucial for the government to hire members of the millennial generation, particularly in the mission-critical fields of science, technology, engineering and math where there is stiff competition with the private sector.
These results are a must-read for government officials who want to stay up-to-date with developing trends in recruiting.
The multigenerational workforce, compliance requirements, and new technologies are the top trends affecting human capital management today.

Every organization strives for a workforce that is engaged, inspired, and motivated to perform at its best day in and day out. But what is the reality?
According to Gallup, only 13 percent of all employees worldwide today are engaged in their jobs — an alarming statistic given the importance of the workforce in fueling growth and meeting other key enterprise goals. Employees are typically an organization’s most vital (and expensive) asset, and when they are disengaged and/or disenfranchised, the ripple effects across the business can impact your profitability and branding.

By analyzing and reporting on the full range of human capital management (HCM) data, business intelligence (BI) uncovers the insights executives need for smarter staffing, planning, and budgeting decisions.
With the right metrics, HR can not only deliver additional value, savings, and increased productivity to the business, but also can more clearly articulate to the CEO and executive team the vital role HR plays in business success.
There are countless ways to measure workforce intelligence, but just tracking soft measurements such as "improvements" isn't enough. In order to get the attention of senior management while positively impacting business results, HR must challenge the way it uses workforce intelligence. To provide more meaningful analytics that help drive business success, HR should rely on metrics that focus on business goals, establish revenue impact, and anticipate future trends in the workforce.
This e-guide will allow you to explore some of the most valuable reports and tools that HR professionals can turn to when delivering data to executives. Additionally, uncover tips for more effectively utilizing your workforce data to make fact-based decisions about human capital investments as they relate to business and financial objectives.
Forward-thinking HR teams have quickly realized the way to elevate HR's strategic capabilities and their business to its maximum potential is to go beyond the adoption of reporting applications and recognize the importance of building a sophisticated, cohesive business intelligence infrastructure.
Used to its greatest advantage, this type of comprehensive business intelligence--easily accessed and delivered rapidly--can prove to be a major differentiator for your business, one that can also transform HR managers to HCM strategists. This paper will show you how.
