Karen Evans, MD of NGA.NET discussing recruiting across the ages.

Generation X, Y, Z and Alpha. These fairly common terms may sound like something from the X-Files, but they are possibly one of the most important things a HR manager or recruitment agency should know when recruiting people of different ages. Generational gaps are much broader than you may think. Not only are people of different ages at different stages at life, but they have lived through vastly different environments through their education and career.
