Human resources managers are shifting their recruit/retain strategies as inflation and the search for top young talent collide.

A recent survey of 250 HR executives by benefits provider Lively Inc. tells us that employers are focusing increasingly on attracting the workers of the future as baby boomers and GenXers age out of the workplace. Few employers are standing pat with their benefits offerings, as 84% of respondents say they have increased benefits this year.

Among top talent spotting and saving tactics cited by these respondents: Offer flexible work arrangements, beef up family friendly benefits, support young women with the benefits package, and ante up on salaries and bonuses to help younger workers offset the impact of rising prices.
