Too entitled, disloyal, and impatient din daw sila because they want it all and they want it now but unwilling to break a sweat.
Pero, how true is this?
While majority are stereotyping the millennials in the workplace, let’s try to get to know them better para naman you won’t be part of those who are overcritical sa kanila.
Millennials, also known as Generation Y, are those who were born between 1980 and 2000 and grew up in the digital technology age. According to PwC in their study Millennials at work Reshaping the workplace, this digital natives will take over half of the global workforce by 2020.
Contrary to what others perceive about them, millennials are people with purpose. They follow “purpose over paycheck” perspective, sabi ni Ma. Glaiza Lee of The Manila Times in her article How millennials are changing the workplace.
“Millennials put a premium on doing meaningful work, compared to their older counterparts. While the senior workers give importance on high pay, the junior workers don’t exactly mind how much salary they get,” she explained.
Oo, hindi sila after the money but they are 1st concerned with personal learning and development. 2nd, they want flexible working hours. Cash bonuses come last in place place, PwC said.
Kung sa tingin mo tatamad-tamad ang millennials, sa totoo lang, they are working harder compared to other generations.
According to ManPowerGroup in their report Millennial Careers: 2020 Vision, more than 70% of millennials are working more than 40 hours a week and more than 20% of them juggle 2 or more jobs.
Mahalaga rin sa kanila ang good leadership and regular feedback.
Although information is at their fingertips, millennials are eager to learn more and need good role models and mentors who will constantly review their performance at work, Boris Joaquin and Renz Mansujeto said in an article entitled Motivating millennials in the workplace by Glenn San Luis of Inquirer.Net.
Mas natututo sila through feedback and it keeps them motivated to move forward in the company.
Kilala din ang mga millennials as adventure seekers.
So, gusto nila when they get involved in projects and activities because they feel challenged and valued.
“When you invest in their growth and development, it is more likely that they will stay with you, under your leadership, and be loyal to the organization,” Boris and Renz added.
Instead of hating them, intindihin mo muna sila and where they are coming from. Millennials have their weaknesses and strengths just like the other generations.
But through this rapidly evolving world, may nag-iisang constant at hindi magbabago kailanman.
