In 2025, people born between the 1980’s and the 2000’s will represent 75% of the world’s labour force. Many millennials are asking themselves the same question: what is a youngster like myself doing in a job like this? Most of these young fellows witness how their demands barely match with the existent labour offer, and have a hard time dealing with the emotional management of most organizations. In this MOOC for companies, we are going to provide the key elements to understand and empathize with the ambitions of millennials. Their profile - which offers social and technical talent lacking in most companies, is a blessing, but its management can present great challenges.
Grown among abundance and raised on post-modern values, what they expect from a job has little to do with what older generations used to. They want (much more) flexibility, they require to be listened, they need to know that they can thrive rapidly and that their ideas count, even if only to be refuted.
And yes, they are unfaithful by nature: one out of 5 millennials is to voluntarily switch jobs this year… triple the ratio of the rest of the labour force. The cost of this rotation is huge for their companies: only in the United States, this cost sums up around 30.000 million dollars per year.
In this online course for companies we are going to help you understand the characteristics of this type of workers, which are their drivers and motivations, which style of management is more adequate to foster their loyalty, and how to actualize their maximum potential. We will also learn, through case studies and interviews, how to entice millennial talent and to apply strategies aiming to retain it in the company in the long run.
