When employer brands focus on work-life balance, they strengthen their position as an employer of choice with Gen Y job seekers.
That’s because employees who work in environments where their work and personal lives are respected are often more productive, focused and engaged than those who don’t.
Work-life balance has become a major focus for many employer brands, and is a leading factor influencing the career decisions of top Gen Y talent.
Wow, what a night! TalentEgg’s Vancouver Gen Y Recruitment Insider was another fantastic success!
In partnership with the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business Career Centre, we welcomed an enthusiastic crowd of human resources professionals from such diverse fields as retail, forestry, finance, and more.
The room was buzzing right from the beginning, as attendees gathered in booths and in the centre of the room to meet, catch up, and share common goals and challenges.
The conversation was only paused when the presentations began. First up was Denise Baker, the Assistant Dean of the Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre at Sauder. Then I shared a bit of information about TalentEgg and unveiled our latest research about Gen Y and employers.
After another great networking break, Kirsti Stubbs, Starbucks’ Program Manager, Staffing, took the stage and provided an insightful case study outlining the activities that Starbucks has undertaken to succeed in campus recruitment with a very limited budget. The audience was hanging on to her every word.
After the presentations, the room erupted into a buzz of idea sharing once again, and everyone enjoyed the drinks and appetizers that were being served by 131 Water Kitchen & Bar staff.
Thank you to Kirsti for sharing her case study, and to everyone else who attended last night!
We will be publishing all the insider data we shared at the events very soon. In the meantime, check out these photos and tweets from last night’s event:
Last night’s Gen Y Recruitment Insider in Calgary was a huge success! Employers from the oil and gas industry, as well as employers representing finance, hospitality, retail and many more, joined us for an evening of networking, peer-to-peer learning, and two egg-cellent presentations.
The first presentation, by TalentEgg, shared data collected from employers across the country and showed how that data compares with what students want and need in campus recruitment. Many of the attendees were also curious about TalentEgg, so we were happy to give an overview of our history and what we do for our clients, some of whom were in the audience!
Our featured speaker, Helen Rol (Team Lead – Early Talent at Suncor Energy), was fantastic! She gave attendees an overview of Suncor’s campus strategy and outlined her “Aha!” moments along the way in her more than 20-year recruitment career. Helen was so engaging that the audience kept her on stage with numerous questions after her presentation.
Thank you to Helen and everyone who attended for making our Calgary event so egg-citing!

Last night TalentEgg held another egg-ceptionally successful Gen Y Recruitment Insider event!
At TalentEgg’s Gen Y Recruitment Insider series, you learn from organizations that have been among the most successful in recruiting Gen Y talent over the past few years, network with your peers in campus recruitment and human resources, and discover the latest in TalentEgg campus recruitment research.
This time around, we invited Lisa Kramer, Campus Recruiting Leader at Accenture Canada, and Andrea Culligan, CEO of GradAd, to speak to a packed room of Toronto’s campus recruitment and human resources professionals about trends in Gen Y recruitment in Canada.
Thank you to both of them for sharing their stories and strategies, and thank you to everyone who came out to the event! We hope you had a great time and learned a lot about Gen Y recruitment.
There are still two more Gen Y Recruitment Insider events coming up later this month in Calgary and Vancouver.
