Millennials Now Largest Part of U.S. Workforce

Population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau found that “Millennials” – defined as people aged 18 to 34 in 2015 – numbered 75.4 million and in 2015 surpassed the 74.9 million Baby Boomers aged 51 to 69, according to a Pew Research Center article. The fact that Millennials have overtaken Baby Boomers as the largest segment of the U.S. workforce and are making employers change their methods of background screening for job applicants is a growing trend. Employers need to be sensitive to special issues in hiring and working with Millennials who are motivated and communicate in much different ways.

With Millennials surpassing Baby Boomers as the largest generation of workforce aged people in the U.S., employers will have to adjust workplaces and hiring processes to suit the more mobile technology and social media oriented behavior of this generation. The most critical issue employers find with millennials, however, is that it is the most “wired” generation so far in history. That means the applicant experience is critical. Any software used to accomplish screening must be intuitive, easy to use and very clear or an employer may find it has an issue attracting millennial candidates.

The focus should be on making the applicant experience as comfortable as possible as well as assuring applicants that their background checks are accurate, legally compliant and their privacy rights are protected. The war for talent—and Millennials—requires a background check process that is easy and intuitive.

ESR’s modern technology provides a transparent, outstanding applicant experience along with a portal where applicants can review notices, status of their background check, access to the completed report, rights under the law and more.
