It’s time for companies to adapt their workplace and their working practices to meet the expectations of the Millenials
I blinked and the people turning up for work are completely different from what I once knew. You have seen them (maybe you are one of them), walking around with earplugs, humming to a rhythm only they can hear and glued to their gadgets. Technology is not something they are taught to use or grow into – they were born with it. Generation Y or the Millennials are now in the marketplace. They are the next generation of leaders and the future of your business is in their hands. How does your business adjust to attract and retain them for best results?
How does a business balance between following established processes and leveraging the current unprecedented technology revolution? A business looking to the future will provide structure while allowing for innovation. Different businesses have devised ways of doing this – thinking spaces or rooms creating an environment conducive for creativity, in-house competitions where best ideas are rewarded and think tanks bringing employees of diverse skills together to resolve issues. This kind of environment provides Generation Y the opportunity to do what they do best – use technology to find solutions
