Getting Young Workers Requires New Thinking

Laramie, Wy – Getting young workers into Wyoming can be done, but companies need to be aggressive in trying to recruit them. Author Jason Ryan Dorsey is a generation Y expert...that is the group born between 1977 and 1995. He says companies need to find young people and convince them to come to Wyoming. He also suggests using websites to show amenities and provide such things as flexible work hours. Dorsey says people need to understand that generation Y workers act differently then Baby Boomers and will value lifestyle over their job. He spoke at the annual Governor's Summit on Workforce Issues.
