The Modern Employee

The Modern Employee

A mindset and behaviour that started with the Millennial generation is now spreading across the wider workforce creating the Modern Employee, who has different needs and ways of working. Businesses need to understand and adapt to this new type of employee in order to remain relevant in the Modern World of Work

Values Alignment

Want a job that aligns with their values and stands for something meaningful

Culture is key

Company culture is one of the top reasons why modern employees choose to work at an organisation and an even more important reason why they stay

Job security not as important

66% of modern employees expect to move companies by 2020 and the rise of the gig economy shows there is a shift to more irregular working

Salary and Job title are hygiene factors

Although salary and job titles are important, they should not be at the expense of values and culture. Other benefits such a work-life balance are becoming more important and must be considered

Flexible Working

Want the ability to work where and when they can be most productive

Personal Development is vital

Opportunities to progress reduce as organisations become flatter, yet personal development is still essential to avoid stagnation

Demand regular feedback

With always on communication, modern employees expect regular feedback as opposed to just an annual review of their performance

Should be valued on output and not time

Old paradigms of promoting people based on the time they have served is no longer applicable as modern employees move jobs more and pace of change increases
