Young employees. Everyone’s got them and everyone’s got a story about them. A whizz with new technology and keen as mustard to adopt new ideas, or distracted, disruptive and unreliable – Millennial employees can be either the best or worst thing that has happened to your business.
They are proven to be smarter but have a large sense of entitlement, are more disengaged but more likely to want their work to be meaningful . . . They are an enigma. As Goldman Sachs’ researchers put it, “Millennials have grown up in a time of rapid change, giving them a set of priorities and expectations sharply different from previous generations”. In less than a decade, three out of every four workers will be a Millennial. The success and future of your business depends on you, the boss, getting your head around who Millennials are and how to get the best out of them.
