Millennials in the Workplace
Published by: Online Rewards Employee Recognition
Millennials now make up more than 40% of the workplace -- the most of any other generation. Leadership across the globe has been tasked to create a culture in which multiple generations can coexist in their unique workforces. As a result of multiple generations in the workplace, there are differing and even conflicting opinions, priorities, communication styles, and skillsets among them. Perhaps even more challenging is understanding how to recruit and retain team members.
It is necessary to understand a primary work style of the largest generation in the workforce. Numerous studies have shown that a significant and overarching characteristic of the work style of millennials is the importance of feedback, acknowledgement, and recognition in the workplace. Given the unstable climate to which they graduated, stability in the workplace is of utmost importance, and many consider positive reinforcement and recognition to be a foundation of that stability.
What better way to recruit and retain millennials than to implement an Employee Recognition Program, while cultivating a positive work environment for team members from all generations?
