Recruiting Millenials in the Plastics and Packaging Industry
Studies show that in many ways, millennials desire the same thing other generations want in a career position: Stability, opportunities for advancement, and a real chance to make a difference.
However, millennials are more risk averse than previous generations, and this makes them more eager to find career opportunities with companies with good reputations, which they may believe can shelter them from possible adverse career outcomes.
This highlights the strength of the Evans & James name in the plastics and packaging industry. As the industry’s premier recruiter, we have long been trusted to consider the needs of the candidate in the recruitment process. We work for the employer, but we would never put forward a candidate who we knew was not going to be well served by the opportunity. That integrity means as much to millennials as to anyone.
