XpertHR is running a short benchmarking survey on the recruitment, engagement and retention of young workers.

The research looks at candidate attraction and selection methods that employers use when recruiting young workers, how employers approach management and retention, and how organisations measure employee engagement among this younger generation.

It also covers labour turnover rates among young workers, and how these compare with labour turnover rates for the organisation as a whole.

For the purposes of this survey, young workers are defined as those aged between 16 and 24, excluding graduates.

Take part in this XpertHR Benchmarking research and receive:

  • a complimentary copy of the data report, as soon as it is available; and
  • a free copy of XpertHR’s 2016 graduate recruitment survey report, emailed to you on completion of the survey.

In addition, all respondents whose data can be used in XpertHR survey analyses will be entered into a draw for the chance to win one of four £250 prizes.

The closing date for the prize draw is 31 December 2016, with the draw set to take place in the week commencing 16 January 2017. Please note that the prize is 4 x £250 and the winners will be notified by email in the week commencing 16 January 2017.

Previous XpertHR research on recruiting young workers – conducted in 2008 – found that employers cited online advertising, work experience and local newspaper advertising as the three most effective ways of finding young workers. The three most effective criteria for selecting young workers were attitude to work, potential and performance at interview.

The survey closes on 30 November 2016.
