becoming a workplace that works for everyone
It’s no easy task to build a workplace culture that speaks to the needs and wants of millennials – the largest generation in the United States workforce today. That’s why it’s important to do it right, with or without the ping pong tables.
Millennials have ignited a shift in the way we approach work, and nothing is more certain than their eagerness for growth. This presents management with an imperative challenge. In fact, Gallup’s recent findings confirm that millennials are less concerned about job satisfaction or annual reviews and more about ongoing development, and less about paychecks and more about purpose. This shifts the role of a manager from that of a boss to that of a coach.
Building the internal capacity for a coaching culture equips your managers with the tools to support the development of your millennial workforce and, more importantly, set the example for your next generation of leaders. At the end of the day, one thing is clear – when you invest in the growth of your millennials, they invest in the growth of your business. Sounds like a win-win to us.
