BUSINESSES NEED TO CHANGE HOW THEY MANAGE
AND ENGAGE A MILLENNIAL WORKFORCE
In order to retain and attract a Millennial workforce it does not mean you need to turn your offices into quasi theme parks and adopt a dress code of board shorts and flip flops. Instead businesses need to understand the Millennial Mindset that sits at the heart of modern employees coupled with understanding the impact technology is having on how we all work, in order to design a workplace and adopt a culture that is fit for purpose. This means there needs to be fundamental changes in standard working practices such as when, where and how employees work, the amount and level of feedback that is given, career progression, having a clear business purpose with a vision and values that employees can get behind. They must also take responsibility for the world they operate in and use business as a force for good and not just to grow their profit margin. This new way of working is not just a gimmick as some of the world’s most successful companies such as google and facebook have been built from the ground up with this type of cultural framework and as a result have become the ‘Mecca’ of places to work for the best Millennial talent. Below are the key elements any forward thinking business should consider if they are trying to adopt a Millennial Mindset and evolve their internal culture to attract, engage and retain the best modern employees.
