Tips for leading millennial employees

first_imgOver the next decade, as Gen X starts to retire, Millennials will take over as the majority in the workforce. For leaders who haven’t yet gotten a grasp on managing this generation, here are few tips to keep in mind…Give them what they want: While money is obviously a factor for anyone in any job situation, it’s usually not the main focus for Gen Y. The work, passion, atmosphere, and culture are all more important to this generation. The “old school” office culture isn’t as appealing to new talent as it used to be.Lead, don’t manage: Gen Y has a bad reputation for not respecting authority. Don’t manage like a king holding a title over their head. Instead of being commanding and demanding, be an approachable mentor that can be a source of guidance for your younger employees. And always give feedback whether it’s good or bad.Develop their passion: Millennials don’t necessarily know what they want out of their career. Help them learn new skills and develop into their best self. Millennials aren’t scared of trying new things, so help them find an area where they can grow, so you won’t have to replace them when they leave for a position they’re more passionate about. 47SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.
