Millennials, also known as Gen Y’s, make up the largest group of employees, and by 2025, their numbers will increase to 75% of the global workforce. This unique generation has different priorities, motivations, and career goals. Employers can begin identifying cultural and operational changes that could satisfy these unique skills, motivations, and professional development needs to cultivate a culture that inspires and nurtures the team while driving company strategic goals.
To best understand this new generation at work, it’s important to first recognize their motivations and how they best operate.
This new generation is known for their passion for learning, their ability to change, and their native digital skills. Millennials, and certainly Gen Z’s, are one of the most adaptive and free-thinking generations. They came of age in a highly technological world, born to the hardworking baby boomers. Their personalities are as unique as any generation before them.
Many millennials are wired to want frequent feedback and instant gratification. Pay raises, annual recognition meetings are appreciated, but these methods could lack the frequency needed to motivate Gen X and Y’s. Instead, their accomplishments should be recognized sooner and their opportunities for upward mobility should be attainable and clearly defined.
Millennial Learning Styles
This next-generation values learning that is self-directed and flexible. Mobile and microlearning are flexible and digestible in a format they have come to appreciate. The gamification techniques provide instant feedback and gratification. For this group, however, it’s especially important to ensure that training materials are directly relevant to the work being performed.
A New Generation for a New Era
Each generation is unique and are invaluable assets that organizations must continue to nurture and develop for the well-being of their staff and the growth of the business. Understanding what challenges, motivates, and satisfies millennials and Gen Z’s is vital as this fastest-growing generation emerges in the workplace.
The millennials’ ease with technology and change can be leveraged to keep companies nimble. Nurturing their professional development priorities, work/life balance, and open communication channels are some of the ways to motivate this new generation. As a leader of this modern workforce, keep a focus on the advantages of this new generation and the competitive edge it gives you.
