Millennials are very guarded about their time, but we need flexibility. Any suggestions?
THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Remember when you had a life, before you got totally wrapped up the in the business? Make agreements with your employees about what is acceptable. Staff your business to allow flexibility and recovery ability. Happy employees and a good work environment mean productivity and profits.
I’m getting a lot of applications from millennials, but it seems like millennials are just looking for the next best thing and are not willing to work as hard as generations before. Is it just bad stereotypes? How do I manage their expectations and mine, and use them to move the company forward?
Thoughts of the Day: Raised to be the best inside a protective bubble, millennials may need help to succeed. Harness the enthusiasm of youth, marry it with the wisdom that comes from experience, and you’ll have a winning combination. Stop generalizing. Know that millennials want to buy in. Learn to harness a millennial and maybe one day they’ll help to run your company.
