We can thank Millenials, also known as Generation Y, for changing the recruiting game, according to Dr. Ira Wolfe, founder and president of Success Performance Solutions.
He is an expert in helping companies recruit employees from all generations, but as a self-proclaimed 'Gen Y trapped in a Baby Boomer body,' Wolfe has figured out what works for the younger set - at least until a new technology or social media platform changes things again. In other words, Wolfe warns that "Trying to recruit and hire employees today without using technology and social media is like trying to send an email using a typewriter. Recruiting has become a complex process that requires hiring managers to know how and where job seekers look for jobs and then quickly engage them. "An exceptional "candidate experience" isn't just a buzzword anymore but an essential competitive strategic advantage." Picture Dr. Ira Wolfe, founder and president of Success Performance Solutions says, "Trying to recruit and hire employees today without using technology and social media is like trying to send an email using a typewriter." Wolfe has studied this "new world" recruiting process extensively. His insights and advice have been featured in Inc. magazine, the Huffington Post, PBS and on countless web blogs and job search engine sites. He's written a book on the topic - Geeks, Geezers, and Googlization, How to Manage the Unprecedented Convergence of the Wired, the Tired and Technology in the Workplace ¬- and has coined the term "Recroogilization" to describe how companies can recruit better talent in today's market. "It's time to stop resisting, kicking and fighting change," Wolfe said. "Companies, and specifically HR, need to embrace the world as it is today. In a search-driven, digital world, recruiting tools are merely commodities - available to anyone who wants to use them. But that doesn't mean you should declare them useless. Top talent has choices where they work and Success Performance Solutions helps companies become more responsive, effective, and efficient when it comes to recruiting and hiring." Wolfe provides his clients, mostly small and medium size businesses in a variety of industries, with proprietary software and screening solutions that help recruiters streamline the recruiting process. When coupled with a good social media strategy and mobile-friendly applications, automation allows companies to conduct a comprehensive search that is user-friendly, responsive, and affordable. After the applications are screened and sorted, the next step in Wolfe's strategy comes into play - testing. While Wolfe is a "DISC" enthusiast, he warns clients the assessment was never designed or validated for hiring. Wolfe recommends what he calls "the whole person approach" and helps companies select the best testing to assess job, team, and cultural fit. "Sometimes it can be a single instrument," Wolfe said. "But when attitude, skills, and the ability to hit the ground running are important, it may require a combination of a few different tools." While testing helps winnow down the applicant pool, many companies ignore what Wolfe believes may be an assessment's most important value - the interview questions. Wolfe provides recruiters, HR, or hiring managers with interview questions based on the test results. For instance, if test results indicate an applicant may not perform well in high pressure situations or fast-paced workplace, Wolfe suggests questions that will help uncover vulnerabilities and how likely the candidate will succeed or fail once on the payroll. Dent said, "Ira's services comprise helpful insights in determining the "fit" of a person within an organization. "I don't ever want to do a new hire without Ira's input," Dent said. And that's what really differentiates Success Performance Solutions - customer service. "Truth be told," says Wolfe, "technology and testing are just products - and there are a lot of good ones. What our competition hasn't been able to replicate is how we cater to our clients - large and small."

Making Manufacturing Relevant for the Next Generation - NPCA

precast.org [cached]

Ira S. Wolfe, president at Success Performance Solutions, a recruiting and employee selection firm in Lehigh Valley, Pa., has seen firsthand the struggles that today's manufacturers are dealing with.
"A lot of manufacturers are tackling a 21st-century problem with 19th-century tools and it's not working out very well for them," Wolfe said. Wolfe said one of the first things precasters can do is accept the fact that manufacturing can be a dirty job, particularly to a millennial who may have had his or her heart set on becoming a designer, IT professional or architect. However, precast concrete manufacturing actually incorporates all those passions into one rewarding career that produces very tangible results. A $1 trillion national infrastructure improvement plan, for example, would incorporate new bridges, highways and utility infrastructure - all of which require precast. To get these points across, Wolfe tells manufacturers to focus on rebranding precast as a truly cool and rewarding career track. And remind candidates that precast isn't just down-and-dirty plant work - it also requires good project management, sales and accounting professionals. "It's not just manual labor anymore and people need to know that," Wolfe said. Finally, Wolfe said precasters should consider their current employment and advancement pathways, knowing that the new generation of workers will want to know what lies ahead for them five, 10 or 15 years down the road.
