The Importance of Young Talent in the Workplace
It is becoming increasingly important to attract and retain young talent in rural America. Young professionals, people who are 30 years old and younger, already make up 36 percent of the workforce in America, those numbers will continue to grow. There has never been a better time to take the plunge and invest in young talent in the workforce.. so what are you waiting for?
"One challenge companies may face when employing young talent is their hunger to grow and develop their careers. If your company does not set up a career path for them, they will find somewhere better who does, so putting in place a clear structure for how you want your young talent to grow within the organization is vital. Whatever industry, however large or small the company is, the young, up-and-coming talent should never be underestimated. They are willing to bring expert ideas to businesses, speaking their mind of how they see the company and market going – a unique addition to both international and local organizations." -ajsinvestments.com
