The paper analyzed the results of a recent survey on what prospective employees expect from an employer and how they go about learning what a company values. The results may surprise some companies reluctant to change. The follow-up survey to alumni explored what the three generations value in an employer and how they go about finding that information.

Organizations willing to use the most effective outreach media should be well-positioned to win the war for talent in the years ahead.
