The Millennial Mindset

A new way of thinking about work and not just an age group

By 2020, 50% of the global workforce will be Millennials, who like all generations before them are shaped by their environments. In the case of Millennials, growing up with access to the internet and spending almost all of their adult life in recession, has significantly impacted their view of the world and how they want to work.

This new generation of employee has started to shift the balance of power away from the employer to employee as they want something different from work. This has lead to a mass exodus of Millennial talent to new types of organisations that were built from the ground up to reflect a way of working that is more aligned with the way the world is and not the way the world was.

However, Millennials are simply early adopters of this new way of working, which is now starting to spread across other generations, giving rise to the Modern Employee. This is increasing the pressure on traditional businesses to fundamentally change their ways of working so they do not become irrelevant to the growing number of modern employees. The Millennial Mindset was created to help businesses understand more about this changing mindset and bridge the gap between traditional organisations and the needs of the Modern Employee.

Adam Henderson is the founder of the Millennial Mindset and is himself a Millennial, albeit at the older end of the spectrum. After working at a senior level in marketing and advertising for almost a decade, predominantly in London, Adam has been on the front line of the digital transformation at some of the world’s biggest brands that include Jaguar Land Rover, British Gas, Associated Press, Natwest & Royal Bank of Scotland. During this time Adam saw the tremendous shift in consumer behaviour brought about by the recession and the impact of technology, and spent his early career understanding this change and developing new ways to engage and influence this evolving audience. He noticed however, that although businesses were spending a lot of time and resources changing to cater to the evolving consumer, very few had the same focus on their employees who were also experiencing the same behaviour change. This prolonged lack of focus has resulted in demotivated, unengaged and unproductive employees, particularly amongst the Millennial generation, many of whom are choosing to leave traditional businesses and work in startups or tech companies that cater more towards their needs and ways of working. This is leaving many traditional companies struggling to attract, engage and retain new talent as they are no longer relevant for the modern world of work.

In 2014, Adam setup the Millennial Mindset to better understand this new generation of employee, and use this understanding to help businesses change their ways of working through writing, speaking and direct business support. His mission is to ‘help businesses bridge the gap between their current ways of working and the needs of a Modern Workforce‘. In doing so, Adam will be able to help create Modern Organisations where employees feel happy and engaged at work, and employers have a workforce that provides them with a competitive edge.

Adam applies his expertise as the founder and lead consultant at Gravitee, an internal change consultancy that helps businesses change their ways of working in order to Attract, Engage and Retain a Modern Workforce. He is also a prominent writer with his articles being read by over 1 million people across the world and is an accomplished speaker, most recognised for his TEDx talk titled ‘Re-thinking Work for the Modern World.’
