Publication Provides Insight on Millennial Workforce

NASPO's latest publication, Recommendations from the Future Workforce, is based on information gathered through focus group discussions, one-on-one interviews, and other research. It presents a quick overview of what the Millennial generation can contribute to state procurement offices, and then provides some basic recommendations from Millennials already working in state procurement to address recruitment and retention challenges. 

Leslie Scott, Executive Director of NASPE, provided insights from the Human Resources perspective.

“Potential employees may be looking for things beyond career-long employment. Compensation, development, organizational culture, and opportunities will play a critical role in retaining the workforce,” says Leslie Scott, executive director of the National Association of State Personnel Executives (NASPE).
“States are experiencing, and will continue to experience over the next several years, a significant change to their government workforce,” says Leslie Scott, executive director of NASPE. “It is important that states prepare for this new generation of workers in all aspects of employment from recruitment, onboarding, employee development, and retention strategies.”
