Quit the boss role and act as a mentor
Millennials want to work in an environment where their boss is a typical guru, a great adviser and not a strict employer. No college or campus graduate wants to be yelled at in the office. A working environment that’s adjustable to amicable relationships with your boss is what the young generation looks for. A boss who guides rather than instructs on how work is to be done will be liked most by Millennials
Communication is done through digital media
Remember when people used to write letters? Well, that stage was buried and forgotten by Generation Y and any sense of it won’t be accommodated anywhere in their lifestyle. With the emergence of the internet and social media platforms, all cross communication among Millennials is through their smartphones and laptops. And they have fully embraced it. You won’t find guys in the office writing letters, instead, that information is sent electronically through e-mail, direct messaging i.e. WhatsApp
Forget about working for a long time at one place
This new breed of workers has an element of not being sedentary at the workplace. Earlier, people could work for a company for more than five or ten years but this is different. Millennials have goals and expectations lingering in their minds and what they seek to find are the means to achieving them. They don’t want to be in one place for more than three years unless that job that is really hefty in its salary allocations; a consideration which I find doubtful looking at the economics of this country.
Millennials have a preference of free working space
An office layout with minimal disruptions, and that includes noise from other colleagues, continues irritating movements, is a perfect match for Millennials. Traditional cubicles where employees seemed ‘masked’ in their line of duties have been replaced with open working spaces, where they have their own desks.
They can work from anywhere, office not mandatory
Millennials have a diverse network of grouping where they can timely complete their assigned works, submit them and still get extra time for other essentials. Remember, unlike in the past, they are not tied down to one job. Work that involves constant presence is given thumps down by Millennials.
