Nearly half of today’s workforce, both retail and commercial, were born after 1980. They are called the Millennials, and they are the most unique employees any manager or supervisor has ever had to deal with. They are not your 20th Century human resources.
The millennial generally has a student loan debt, and resides at home, forsaking the American dream of the 20th Century. Plans for the house, spouse, and child have been temporarily put on hold. Also put on hold, is the career path that employees use to put in place when they started a new job. The great majority of millennials have a job life span of less than 3 years. Trust is not the word of this century, when more than half of them (Millennials) have their savings in CASH. 83% of them think “there is too much power concentrated in the hands of a few big companies. Only 19% of them believe “most people can be trusted.”
In a century where “velocity” is a way of life, where things are done in a “Nano”, and people challenge values that have stood for centuries—we need to stop and reconcile the past and present, in our everyday professional and personal lives. In time when our future leaders and workers crave innovation, nurturing, and a chance to make a difference, we in the current leadership must understand, manage differently, and build a strong rapport if our tomorrows are going to be better than today.
