3 Predictions for Recruiters in 2015


The New Year is the time when things begin to change, and 2015 will be no exception to that rule. With the growth of innovative technology and the change in demographic trends, there is a lot that is going to change about the workforce in the near future. It’s time for recruiters to take note of the significant changes that are likely to impact their HR strategies this year.

The Demographic Trend

Born in 1980 and after, this generation is classified as Gen Y. And the oldest member of Gen Y is going to be 35 years old this year. This means that the people of this generation are now in the prime of their careers. With start-ups and enterprises growing in number, along with exponential growth in technology, Gen Y will soon be leading the workforce in nearly all sectors and industries. Additionally, Gen Z (born in the mid to late 90s and after) is coming of age. The members of this generation are in high school and college now and will soon be ready for internships and jobs. It is important to keep in mind that this generation has never known a world without the Internet. By 2020, India is going to be the world’s youngest nation, and Gen Y and Gen Z are going to transform the dynamics of the workforce starting 2015.

The Widening Skills Gap

The evolution of technology and of the demographic is bound to reshape the nature of the workforce. One of the major concerns before recruiters will be to find competent and qualified employees who will be able to keep with these dynamic changes. The ideal employee is the one with all the relevant skills and is adept at the task to be performed.

The “Continuous Job Search” Culture

Gone is the time when people would find a new job only when they were out of one or were extremely dissatisfied with the one they were currently in. Today, employees are constantly on the lookout for better opportunities and, with the assistance of the Internet, they are able to connect with recruiters and employers much more easily. Starting 2015, recruiters must be prepared for a significant amount of turnover at workplaces.
