It seems like everyone have an opinion about the incoming workforce – millennials. Both positive and negative. No matter your feelings, they are the future workforce so how do you attract and retain the best talent?
According to this survey, one of the factors millennials value is work-life balance. This is a different mind-set from their older piers where the norm of pulling long hours to be noticed by the boss, is not something millennials want as they value their time. This doesn’t mean they are lazy or don’t want to work, but the millennials have a different work style than the previous generations.
Millennials are often dubbed as 'a coddled generation'; living off the bank of mum and dad, unwilling to get off their phones and work hard. However, whatever your opinions are on the incoming workforce, Millennials reflect the changing nature of society, and organisations need to adapt to in order to attract and retain the best talent. A survey conducted by Korn Ferry Futurestep, named the ‘Futurestep Millennial Survey’, highlights Millennials priorities in the workplace.
