How to Attract, Retain & Engage Millennials

blog-group

As the Millennials move towards taking up the center stage of the American workplace, one can expect quite a few changes in the work outlook. In the way every technological wave has changed old habits, this new generation brings with it the feature of having been born almost simultaneously with the onset and explosion of the internet and the other resultant technologies that have shaped our lives in the recent past.

Undoubtedly, the change the Internet has signaled should rank as the biggest shift in human thinking and activity since at least the Industrial Revolution. The profound change the Net has brought into our lives is more easily adapted and ingested by the generation that is contemporaneous with it and its twin, globalization.

This represents both an opportunity and a challenge. Human resources in any organization have to ensure that they get the best out of this generation. This requires them to update their thinking about the workforce. Traditional, tried models may not work with this new, forerunner generation.

HR has to keep its ear to the ground in understanding the needs and abilities of this generation of Millennials, which, after all, is set to become the major constituent of the American workforce in the years to come, even as the accompanying generations phase out.

A webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for human resources professionals, will offer this crucial learning that can help organizations derive the best out the Millennials at the workforce.

Tonia Morris, Founder of Simply HR, LLC, the expert at this webinar, will explain the ways by which to effectively attract the Millennials into organizations, which requires them to get a thorough understanding of what they value in their careers.

Attracting, Growing and Retaining Millennials

Group of young business people and designers.

The Millennials are the latest generation at the American workforce, which is now home to an amazing five different generations. The Millennials, born roughly in the early 1980’s and reaching their early adulthood in the early 2000’s, are unique in one sense: they are born and are growing almost conterminously with the explosion in the present-day technologies and all their attendant spinoffs, such as the social media.

As they are set to make up the largest chunk of the American workforce in the very immediate future, it is necessary for organizations to understand how to harness their talents and energies for the better of the organization. HR has to understand their qualities and characteristics and has to create a Millennials-friendly workplace that enhances their skills and abilities.

How do organizations do this? What are the ways by which they brand their organizations as ones that are amiable to the Millennials?

Attracting, Growing and Retaining Millennials

20160307200931-millennials-business-people-group-brainstorming-working-office

The generational spread that characterizes the American workforce today is unprecedented: it consists of no fewer than five generations. Quite naturally, the latest entrant into this workforce, the Millennials, will be the dominant group as the others start to phase out. They are set to constitute almost three fourths of the total workforce by 2025, an estimate made out by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Hiring, retaining and getting the best out of the Millennials is a challenge that organizations face now. New generations have been entering the workforce from the beginning, but the Millennials are the first generation that was born contemporaneously with the onset of new technologies such as the internet and the many spinoffs it has brought in its wake, such as the social media, online learning and many more.

The Millennials are characterized by impulsiveness and a lack of attention, and a flair for the visual medium. These, plus other factors that mark them out, need to be factored in when inducting them into the workforce. This makes learning of the ways to handle them an imperative for organizations. If they have to derive the best that the Millennials offer, organizations’ HR has to learn how to optimize the organization’s resources by leveraging the unique strengths that the Millennials bring into the workforce.

The ways by which they can do this will be the learning a webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the human resources areas, on May 15. The speaker of this sixty-minute session is Lynn Ware, CEO and President, Integral Talent Systems, Inc.

Dr. Ware will show the preferred ways in which Millennials like to learn and develop themselves (Millennial learning preferences). She will help participants discover the components of an integrated career development strategy for Millennials at their organization. She will help them identify leadership practices that are effective in engaging and retaining millennial talent.

Since this generation is closely associated with technology, an organization that wants to hire millennials needs to pitch itself as one that appeals to this generation by showcasing the technological innovations it adapts. Dr. Ware will explain the findings of research that has tried to understand what Millennials look for in their employee work experience. This is going to be a highly practical and interactive session in which participants will learn how to manage their recruiting process to attract millennial applicants over the competition, how to develop them and to retain them longer than average.

Dr. Ware will cover the following areas at this session:

  • Share research findings on what attracts and retains Millennial compared to other generations
  • Explore employment policies such as flexible work schedules
  • Build a Millennial sticky employment brand for your organization
  • Consider how to modify your organization’s existing development methods for early career workers

The Millennial Workforce: How Smart Companies Engage and Tap Their Entrepreneurial Energy

Group of young business people and designers.

In this present scenario at the American workforce, where, as the Deloitte Millennial Survey, released in January 2014 shows, Millennials will make up nearly half the workforce by next year; there is a pressing need for employers to devise the right strategies to hire, retain and optimize this major chunk.

A few facts about the Millennials are well known. For instance, being the first generation to be almost contemporaneously born with the new technologies that are influencing our world; they are prone to very short attention spans and are more likely to rely on the visual medium to grasps concepts better. These apart, what is also striking about them is the fact that they hate working in a bureaucratic environment and love to be independent at work.

Being highfliers, they don’t like to be confined to the workplace for long. They love to be enterprising and will move to more rewarding opportunities much faster than the previous generations did. The criteria they usually consider for higher rewards include autonomy, freedom to be creative, and the opportunity for making an impact.

This makes it imperative for managers of the present-day organizations to create the right environment for this segment of the workforce if they have to leverage their skills and knowledge. The aim of doing this is obvious: to be in a position to better marshal their talent to make them more productive for the organization.

Thorough learning of how to handle the Millennials at the workplace

It is this knowledge that will be the core of a learning session that TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the human resources areas, is offering at a webinar. At this webinar, Marcia Zidle, CEO of Leaders At All Levels, will be the speaker. Please visit http://bit.ly/2Hc8QZu to register for this highly valuable session.

  • Define engagement and identify the three types of employees
  • Recognize the myths and the realities of the millennial workforce
  • Discover why millennials are great candidates for intrapreneurship
  • Review examples of intrapreneurship in large, medium and small size companies
  • Recognize the type of culture that encourages innovation and intrapreneurship
  • Discover why the manager is the key for employee engagement, innovation and retention
