A workplace that engages and retains this emerging generation of workers is key to healthcare recruitment success.
If you’re wondering whether or not you need to be targeting and recruiting Millennials, the statistics are pretty clear that you should be.
Born between 1977 and 2000, Millennials now make up 25% of the U.S. population and according to recent studies, they are now the largest generation in the U.S. workforce.
Also, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, by 2050, the U.S. Census predicts that 19.6 million American workers will be 65 years or older, roughly 19 percent of the total U.S. workforce. In fact, the number of individuals in the labor force who are 65 years or older is expected to grow by 75 percent while the number of individuals in the workforce who are 25 to 54 is only expected to grow by 2 percent.
