Millennials – Living, Working, Doing

Being out and about networking for our business it’s hard to go a week, well let’s be honest a day without hearing someone bringing up – Millennials and how to deal with those ‘darn kids’! As I was wondering why I can’t go a day without someone bringing up the topic of millennials, company culture, or the generation gap. I then realized why this topic is so prevalent, the Baby Boomers and the Gen X’ers are hiring us, recruiting us and trying to retain us at their offices.

So they (older crowd) want us (Millennials) in the office doing all the awesomeness we do but then our co-workers and bosses don’t know how to deal with us because we are so different from the other generations. For example Millennials are now the most diverse, and largest living generation in the U.S. For the first time we feel like we can be ourselves in the office which means we want to talk to our co-workers and engage with them on a regular-ish basis (we also like to have flexibility to be able to work from home!) We have been influenced by technology and we aggregate very quickly to change which means we adapt well to new ideas and creativity. Check out this study from the White House on everything else you ever wanted to know about Millennials.

So here is this new awesome breed of humans coming into the workforce and we still have the question of “How to Deal”? So you can’t afford to take your sales team to Sedona for a week long energy vortex, meditation retreat here are a list of some things you can do in your office for a new way of engaging, recruiting and retaining your employees. Don’t forget the Millennial generation likes to work at a place where they feel and are treated like family.

Employee Engagement Tips:

  • Walk and Talk Meetings – Take your meeting outside! This is a great way to get outside the box – literally, you’ll see those creative juices flowing immediately.
  • Weekly Meal – If your office is mostly or partly remote have at least one day and time together a week and not in a meeting setting but in a relaxed setting like lunch or breakfast.
  • Adventures – Yes we are saying it but it’s true, try something different with your staff! They will thank you for caring about them enough to see that you want to do something fun and unique. We have facilitated several large and small organization team building events from a few hours to week long adventure retreats and have gotten excellent feedback from participants.

Our favorite thing to incorporate with any of the tips listed above is to NOT allow any type of technology. So no cell phones, ipads, iphones, computers, etc., therefore people are actually communicating and engaging with one another in the present face to face and not getting distracted with anything else.
