Years ago, millennials copped a lot of bad press. This generation of employees, born anywhere between 1977 to 2000, was often described as “entitled” or “unmanageable.” But the tide is turning, and it may simply be because the oldest members of this generation are now doing the leading and managing. In fact, millennials now make up more of the workforce than any other generation. And we’re motivated by significantly different things compared to employees of other generations. (Yes, I fall in the “millennial” camp, too!)
By understanding what motivates millennials and adapting our employee engagement strategies – and our reward and recognition programmes in particular – to align and support these motivators, we have an opportunity to attract and retain exceptional talent.
