Help Your Business Attract the Leading Workforce
Millennials, the term generally considered to mean anyone born between 1980 and the early 2000s, are not the largest living population. By 2020, millennials will make up over 50 percent of the workforce. With that in mind, it’s in your best interest to think about ways your business can attract and retain this evolving workforce.
Have a Cause
Millennial workers want to feel that they’re making the world a better place for someone. It’s your job to show them who and why. Getting your business involved in charity work or clearly explaining how your team helps others to thrive will enable millennials to know they are doing something good.
Let Them Do Their Thing
Once you have a hired and trained your team, leave them to do their jobs. It may sound counterproductive, but millennials feel unchallenged and underutilized in their current roles. They’re ready, willing, and able to show you what they can do. Don’t micromanage them, and ensure they have the reigns to do their job properly.
Know Your Role as a Leader
Remember that leadership isn’t about delegation; it’s not about telling people what to do. Leadership is inspiring your team to do better each time. You should often ask, “What can I do to help?” – Make sure that your team has the right resources and freedom that they need to create. Asking what you can do to help has an amazing knack for uncovering non-resource related problems in the workplace, which gives you the opportunity to address them directly.
