What’s in store for 2020 when it comes to senior living talent? Here are 10 talent trends that will help to shape the workforce in the New Year:
- Candidate-Driven Job Market Continues. As the job market and economy stay strong, we can expect the continuation of a candidate-driven job market. The number of open jobs exceeds the number of job seekers. This means workers continue to have the upper hand. Job seekers have more employment options, opportunities and offers, therefore, more power over senior living organizations and they know it.
- Several Generations in the Workplace. Generational diversity in the workplace is emerging as a key issue faced by the senior living industry. According to Forbes, there are five generations in the workplace and they need to coexist and work as a team. These generations range from baby boomers to Generation Z employees who are just joining the workforce, many fresh out of college. We know that generational differences are causing some of the biggest shifts in our workplaces. Each generation comes with specific demands, viewpoints, and expectations for companies and the workforce.
