Last week Chris Yee, owner of Zenith Search Partners recruiting firm, shared the ways that each of the 5 Generations in the workplace was different. In this episode, Part 2 of his 2-part series on building the best multigenerational workforce, Chris will be sharing the things that unite them and the common needs that every employee, no matter their generation, requires from their workplace leader.
Chris and his team specialize in connecting talented people with great employers in the water treatment space. Welcome back to the Scaling UP! H2O Podcast, Chris, we are looking forward to hearing your research findings about:
- What are the 4 common things that all employees need, no matter their generation?
- What are the top 3 reasons people leave their companies?
- What are the typical lengths of time that an employee from each of the 5 generations will stay with their company, and what is their motivation for leaving?
- What should we as interviewers do to best prepare before interviewing a candidate?
- What are the best questions to ask a candidate in an interview?
