Following my previous Passle it seems millennials are aliens to the older generations. They think that millennials are spoiled and lazy, never look up from their gadgets and want fancy offices with gadgets even they don’t understand. Maybe even some lunch playtime with a ping pong table. Well, some of this might be true, but what they want when it comes to intangible benefits are not very different from yours.
1. Professional Development Training Development is the most coveted work benefit to millennials. 2. Autonomy No one likes a micromanager. Give your young workforce some freedom. 3. Shared Achievement Millennials like to collaborate, and have a sense of being a part of something bigger than themselves. 4. Flexible Schedule Who doesn’t like the thought of working away from the office once in a while? 5. Creative Freedom It’s not enough just to say that your company is innovative; prove it. 6. Aligned Values 58% of workers would accept a 15% pay cut to work for an organisation with values that are aligned with their own. 7. Challenging Opportunities Older employers should “accept and strive to understand what drives this new generation.”
