Each generation has a set of defining characteristics in the workplace, and millennials are no exception.
Trends show that by 2025, the millennials are going to comprise 75% of the workforce. With that comes a pressing need to change the way you manage your employees. As early as now, it’s crucial to understand millennials and adopt a company culture where they can feel happy and professionally fulfilled.
Among some of the millennials’ top priorities are work-life balance and career growth. Discovering that a company provides flexible hours and remote working options empower them into achieving other goals and lessen the risk of burnout. In addition, if they discover that they have the potential to grow in a company, they’re more likely to stay and reap the rewards.
Because of their different outlook on work, millennials have been typecast as “entitled” and “stubborn.” Contrary to popular belief, you can be successful in managing millennials. The key to fostering a pleasant work environment for your employees boils down to understanding the way they tick.
The Infographic below includes some of the best practices you can use when managing millennials in the workplace from our friends at Guthrie-Jensen.
