Millennials are the first generation to grow up with smartphones, laptops and Internet access. From reading the news online to emailing colleagues, technology dramatically changed the way Millennials live their everyday life, both at home and work.
Understanding Millennial Employees
Millennials have different work expectations than Baby Boomers and Gen Xers. Today, most Millennials who are working or looking for work:
- Have a smartphone and use the Internet.
- Prefer communicating electronically (e.g., email, instant messaging).
- Enjoy interactive e-learning platforms.
- Want quick and easy access to information.
- Expect company-provided technologies (e.g., wikis, blogs, video-on-demand).
- Want open and frequent communication.
The attitudes listed above are what make workplace technologies so appealing to Millennials. Tech-savvy and highly connected, Millennials are used to having a wealth of information at their fingertips. As a result, organizations must adjust their outreach efforts in order to reach and engage millennial talent.
