How to work with Millennials?

Last article, we talked about who is Generation Z, the future workforce?  Have you ever wondered that which name for current workforce?

Millennials or Generation Y is current labor, that born from 1980 to 2000, before Gen Z. How to wok with the Millennials effectively? are they completely same to their parents at workplace?

Below are some helpful tips for you:

1. Offer More Flexibility: 
Work-life balance is one of the most significant drivers of employee retention among Millennials. This tech-savvy generation is essentially able to work anytime from anywhere with an Internet connection. Thus, seemingly arbitrary work hours or having to sit at a desk all day is less appealing to them.

2. Explain The Company Vision: 
Millennial workers are more likely to look for meaning and impact in their work and aren’t satisfied simply punching a clock. Helping them understand their role in a larger plan gives them a clearer sense of purpose.

3. Provide Education And Professional Development: 
Most Millennials are hungry and want to advance. Assigning stretch projects, bringing in speakers or sending employees to leadership conferences will be especially helpful for those millennial workers interested in learning and growing their skills.

4. Prioritize Community Service: 
Millennials place a higher priority on helping people in need than having a high-paying career. Allowing employees to form committees and use company resources or time to organize their causes meets their desire for social consciousness.

5. Give Them Time For Personal Projects:
Offer employees time to work on a project of their choosing. This will help Millennials feel more engaged and in control and also can boost innovation within the company

6. Give Encouragement And Regular Feedback: 
This generation responds well to encouragement and immediate feedback. Make it clear from the beginning that you reward good work, and then keep an open line of communication to let them know how they’re doing and how they can improve.

7. Develop In-Between Steps And Titles:
Millennials are especially eager to progress in their careers and less willing to wait three to five years for a promotion. By developing in-between steps and titles, managers can meet their desire for career progression.

Generation Z - the next workforce

Generation Z or Gen Z is generation born between 1995 and 2009, who goes by many nickname such as The Silent Generation, The Internet generation, The iGeneration, Generation Now, The Google Generation.

Here are a few of the habits of Generation Z: 

Daily life 
They want everything, everywhere and immediately. They surf on two screens simultaneously. They don't mind paying through the nose for the latest smart phone but turn up their nose at paying for a film or a song when you can get that for free online.
Aged 13 to 20, they get all the latest trends from social media and find the morals of their elders out-of-date.
Their fashions are those found worldwide over the web: they watch American blockbusters like "Hunger Games" or "Divergent", listen to Korean K-pop and, when they dance, they "twerk".
When they speak, their vocabulary is peppered with acronyms, incomprehensible to those not in the know. "Swag" is the new "cool".
And their new idols are Internet stars, like PewDiePie, who has the world's most subscribed YouTube channel.

What they know
Even as young as they are, they have already seen so many technologies become obsolete. For this reason, they have become the ultimate "self-educators", learning how to use new stuff via self-help videos on YouTube.
As for the web, violence, porn, they've already seen it all.

People from Generation Z find it easier to talk online than in person. Their friends on social media are as important to them as their friends in real life but sometimes they do actually meet up in person with these "virtual" pals.
More than eight out of 10 are hooked on social networks and more than half of them think that this is where their real social life takes place.
They are on dating websites from the age of 16 -- sometimes before.

Generation Z at work 
This is a generation that wants to create their own company -- between 50 percent and 72 percent want to run their own start-up.
The idea of "business" brings up negative responses: "complicated", "brutal", "a jungle".
They believe success comes from their "network" rather than from qualifications and they prefer a flat organization to a hierarchy at work.
They want to succeed and achieve, with 76 percent aiming to make their hobby their job.

What they watch 
According to US consultancy Sparks and Honey, the average Generation Z-er spends more than three hours a day in front of a screen.
They live in constant "FOMO", fear of missing out. They can't stand the idea of not being in the loop when something new and exciting comes out.
Facebook is their main poison, despite its flagging popularity among some Americans. Photos on Instagram, quick messages on Snapchat. Twitter and Tumblr are omnipresent.
But it's not all passive: Generation Z are also putting themselves out there on YouTube or "Vlogging" (video blogging), hoping to become the next "Fred" (Lucas Cruikshank), who made his name at the grand old age of 13.
Everyone surfs the web while watching the TV and they think that everything is possible with technology. But, they have a short attention span and tend to skim-read rather than read properly, which can lead to difficulty at school.

The future of Generation Z 
These are children of the crisis and it shows in their outlook. Most of them say they are "stressed out" by what they see as a bleak future, especially in terms of economy and environment.
Given the same pay, 25 percent of the Generation Z in France would choose the most "fun" company, 22 percent the most innovative and 21 percent the most ethical.
But like any idealistic generation, they want to change the world and love the idea of volunteer work, which a quarter of Americans in their late teens are already doing.
