CMATD presents: The New World of Work with Millennials: Talent Management Solutions for the New Generation
Millennials demand a lot from work: a challenging job that pays well, co-workers they like and trust, a Boss who is more like coach, and opportunities for development and recognition for a job well done.
Who doesn’t want the same things?
Employers who understand the unique competencies and perspectives that Millennials bring to the workforce will excel at attracting, retaining and developing top talent.
Working effectively with this generation requires many of us to challenging our own thinking by educating ourselves about the facts which dispel the myths and learn why we need to turn the stereotypes around to work effectively with Millennials by:
- Thinking differently about workplace flexibility – Millennials don’t separate life and work.
- Proving adequate support and feedback so Millennials can learn and grow.
- Build coaching managers because Millennials thrive in a coaching culture.
- Learn how to uncover and appreciate where each generation is coming from and apply techniques that can close the generational and cultural divide.
