Millennials make up a significant portion of our workforce. It has been said that Millennials are the most educated yet most underpaid generation in the workforce to date. What’s more is that this generation is one of “job-hoppers.” They don’t want to (or rather, don’t need to) stay in one place for too long.
All this in mind, employers need to find ways of appealing to, retaining, engaging, and professionally investing in their Millennial employees.
Easier said than done.
To be effective, his effort must be genuine and must communicate that you, as their leader, understand their needs, their values, and their priorities both as professionals and as people.
