Millennial are changing the methods of hiring

August 13th, 2015

Millennials are taking the workplace by storm, forcing managers and HR professionals to rethink the way they do business. Unlike baby boomers, millennials tend to do a short stint at each job before moving on to greener pastures. If hiring millennials is one of your job duties, you may need to try new tactics and persuade high-level managers to offer more perks to new employees.

Millennials tend to have an interest in several career paths. Instead of working at one company for a decade or more, it’s not unusual for a millennial to hold several jobs for one or two years each. Retaining millennials is difficult, especially if the benefits your company offers are geared toward older workers. When hiring millennials, you need to help them identify growth opportunities within the company, or you could lose new employees very quickly.

One thing that makes hiring millennials difficult is the stereotypes associated with members of Generation Y. In a survey of millennials and HR professionals, only 11 percent of the HR professionals surveyed said millennials are hard-working employees. Even worse, only 1 percent of the HR professionals said millennials are loyal to their employers. If you are tasked with hiring millennials, you need to get these stereotypes out of your mind.

For many millennials, what they do for a living is a central part of their identity. “What do you do?” is a common question at social gatherings, and a lot of millennials write about their work on personal blogs or social networking sites. Retaining millennials is a lot easier if you can show a clear connection between entry-level work and better opportunities within your company. Try to give specific examples of people who started out with your company when they were young and then advanced to high-level positions.

If you are having trouble hiring millennials, try putting yourself in their shoes. Young workers often wonder if taking the wrong job right out of college can have a negative impact on their careers. If you were applying for your first professional job, you’d probably want to know how the job could help you in the future. Explain how the position can help the candidate learn new skills or improve existing skills.

Getting along with colleagues is one of the most important aspects of career satisfaction. It doesn"t’t matter how interesting the work is if your colleagues are rude or unfriendly. When you are hiring millennials, give candidates an opportunity to see if their personalities are a good fit with your organization. Arrange for candidates to shadow current employees or participate in panel interviews to give everyone an opportunity to get to know each other.

Millennials are entering the workforce in record numbers. If you forget all the stereotypes you’ve heard, hiring millennials can actually be a pleasant experience. Just make sure you explain all the opportunities available at your company in detail.

Boeing Forecasts Growing Demand for Pilots & Technicians

July 21st, 2015

Boeing [NYSE: BA] today released a new forecast showing continued strong demand for commercial airline pilots and maintenance technicians as the world’s airlines add 38,000 airplanes to the global fleet over the next 20 years.

Boeing’s 2015 Pilot and Technician Outlook projects that between 2015 and 2034, the world will require 558,000 new commercial airline pilots and 609,000 new commercial airline maintenance technicians.

“To help address this need, Boeing trained last year a record number of pilots and technicians at 17 training campuses around the globe and has invested in a comprehensive Pilot Development Program to train early stage pilots to become qualified commercial airline pilots,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight Services. “We will continue to increase the amount of training we provide, enabling our customers to satisfy the world’s growing appetite for air travel.”

“The challenge of meeting the global demand for airline professionals will not be solved by one company alone,” Carbary added. “Aircraft manufacturers, airlines, training equipment manufacturers, training delivery organizations, regulatory agencies and educational institutions are all stepping up to meet the increasing need to train and certify pilots and technicians.”

Boeing’s 2015 Outlook projects continued increases in pilot demand, up more than 4 percent compared to the 2014 Outlook. For maintenance technicians, demand increased approximately 5 percent.

Overall global demand for these skilled resources will be driven by continued economic expansion, resulting in an average requirement for about 28,000 new pilots and more than 30,000 new technicians every year.

NASA Selects Six Trans-Formative Ideas for Aviation

June 23rd, 2015

NASA has selected six proposals to study trans-formative ideas that might expand what’s possible in aviation, shifting the boundary between fantastic and futuristic.

During a day-long meeting in April, 17 teams pitched their ideas to NASA managers. The ideas ranged from environmentally-friendly electric propulsion that uses an aircraft’s structure as a battery, to computer programs that safely allow new airplane designs to go more quickly from concept to use. NASA managers likened the scene to a television reality show in which aspiring entrepreneurs try to sell their ideas to a panel of savvy investors.

“We may find none of these ideas will work,” said Doug Rohn, NASA’s Trans-formative Aeronautics Concepts Program director in the agency’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD). “On the other hand, we could learn they look promising and worth additional longer-term investment.”

Funded under NASA’s Convergent Aeronautics Solutions Project, the studies will run from two to 2.5 years. The project teams are made up of NASA employees from a variety of technical disciplines working across the agency’s aeronautics centers in Virginia, California and Ohio. Each study involves work across multiple centers and disciplines, and directly addresses at least one of NASA’s strategic research goals for aeronautics.

“The idea of the project is this is an investment process, where we’re using almost venture capital-like principles. But instead of money, our return on investment is in knowledge and potential solutions to future challenges in aviation,” Rohn said.

At the close of the project study period, successful ideas may be picked up and funded for additional exploration through other ARMD programs.

Great News for Gulfstreem's G500 and G600

May 18th, 2015

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced that development programs for its all-new aircraft family, the Gulfstream G500 and G600, are well under way, with two of five G500 flight-test aircraft complete and the remaining three in production. The G500 has completed its operational checks and is undergoing taxi validation prior to first flight.

“Thanks to the hard work, commitment and innovation of our employees, we’ve already achieved several program milestones,” said Dan Nale, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test, Gulfstream. Gulfstream introduced the G500 and G600 on Oct. 14, 2014, at one of its new manufacturing facilities in Savannah. During the event, the first G500 rolled out under its own power.

Since then, Gulfstream has inducted two G500 aircraft into the flight-test center in preparation for officially launching the flight-test program later this quarter. Additionally, ground vibration and structural mode interaction testing are complete; the structural test article achieved limit load; and all suppliers have validated the aircraft safety of flight requirements, clearing the aircraft for flight.

Gulfstream has also started manufacturing the first G600 aircraft, which will be used as part of the four-aircraft flight-test program. Wind-tunnel testing for both aircraft is complete, and more than 34,000 hours of lab testing have been logged. Additionally, the company recently started testing in the G600 integration test facility (ITF) and initiated construction of the G600 iron bird, which will allow full evaluation of the aircraft’s systems and software.

Gulfstream suppliers have been equally busy. In February, Pratt & Whitney Canada received certification of the aircraft’s PW814GA and PW815GA engines by Transport Canada in February.

FlightSafety International, Gulfstream’s factory-authorized training provider, has established a full-flight simulator for the G500 at its Learning Center in Savannah. Gulfstream engineering and flight-test personnel have begun using the simulator to supplement work being done in Gulfstream’s G500 ITF and the Conceptual Advanced Simulation Environment to prepare for the first flight of the G500.

“These accomplishments reflect the maturity of these programs and demonstrate our commitment to ensuring a safe, successful and productive certification process,” Nale said.

The G500 and G600 aircraft optimize speed, wide-cabin comfort and efficiency to offer customers best-in-class performance with advanced safety features.

The G500 can fly 5,000 nautical miles/9,260 kilometers at Mach 0.85 or 3,800 nm/7,038 km at Mach 0.90, while the G600 can carry passengers 6,200 nm/11,482 km at Mach 0.85 and 4,800 nm/8,890 km at Mach 0.90. The maximum operating speed for the aircraft is Mach 0.925, the same maximum speed as Gulfstream’s G650 and G650ER.

The G500 and G600 also include Gulfstream’s all-new SymmetryTM Flight Deck, the most advanced, stylish, comfortable and intuitive flight deck in business aviation. The cutting-edge technology comes in the form of active control sidesticks, integrated touchscreen controllers, next-generation enhanced vision system and Honeywell Primus Epic avionics.

In addition to the revolutionary Symmetry Flight Deck, the G500 and G600 cabins maximize passenger comfort and aircraft performance and can carry up to 19 passengers. The optimized wide cabin also features an industry-leading cabin altitude of 4,850 feet/1,478 meters at FL510 and 100 percent fresh air that boosts mental alertness and productivity while reducing fatigue.

Gulfstream anticipates certification of the G500 in 2017, with entry into service in 2018. The G600 certification is slated to follow in 2018 with entry into service in 2019.

Introduction: A Vital Workforce that Supports the Economy

February 12th, 2015

Every day, staffing businesses send three million employees to work in America’s offices, factories,hospitals, warehouses, and other work sites—virtually every place that Americans work, staffing employees are on the job.

The staffing industry, comprising more than 17,000 staffing companies and 11 million staffing employees,contributes nearly $120 billion to the U.S. economy through temporary and contract staffing and search and permanent placement services.

Staffing is an essential industry that provides vital flexibility and support to businesses, and opportunities and flexibility for employees. Businesses depend on staffing employees to get through busy seasons and to support major projects, new clients, and business growth. The flexibility staffing provides gives companies a competitive edge in matching resources and payroll to the needs at hand. More and more, companies are placing an increased premium on more flexible and agile workforces—and staffing plays a vital role in that strategy.

For employees, staffing offers a number of compelling benefits. At the top of that list is a bridge to permanent employment—99% of staffing employees who engage with a staffing firm with principal the goal of obtaining a permanent job achieve their objective. Nearly 9 out of 10 staffing employees say that temporary or contract work makes them more employable; almost eight in 10 say it’s a good way to land a permanent job. Companies that use staffing employees agree: 80% say staffing firms are a good way to find people who can become permanent employees.

Time has shown that staffing sin't’t just good for our economy; it is an essential industry that provides vital flexibility and support to businesses, and opportunities and flexibility for employees. And as the economy continues to evolve, with information and connectivity coming to dominate its core, the staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry is prepared to provide the vital support businesses need to grow and prosper.

Job Outlook for Aviation Mechanics

February 2nd, 2015

Job opportunities for aircraft mechanics are expected to vary among various employers. Opportunities are likely to be best at the smaller commuter and regional airlines, at FAA repair stations, and in general aviation. Commuter and regional airlines are the fastest growing segment of the air transportation industry, but wages in these companies tend to be lower than those in the major airlines, so they attract fewer job applicants. Also, general aviation aircraft are becoming increasingly sophisticated, boosting the demand for qualified mechanics.

Mechanics will face more competition for jobs with large airlines because the high wages and travel benefits that these jobs offer generally attract more qualified applicants than there are openings. Job prospects will be best for applicants who have experience. Mechanics who keep abreast of technological advances in electronics, composite materials, and other areas will be in greatest demand.
