5 Ways To Engage Millennials At Work

5 Ways To Engage Millennials At Work

by Xavier Roy-Perras

Millennials are an interesting bunch, and they’re surprisingly easy to engage at work.

Many people over complicate what they’re looking for and have false stereotypes about them.

They’re not entitled, they’re not spoiled, they’re definitely not lazy.

In fact, since they grew up with the internet, they’re one of the most resourceful, knowledgeable, and capable group of workers.

All millennials really want is to be respected (just like any generation of worker), and to be taken seriously.

You should take this seriously, because by 2025, 3 out of every 4 workers globally will be Millennials.

Being a millennial myself, here are 5 ways that I guarantee will work to engage millennials at work.

1. Ask For Their Input

Don’t think that just because they’re younger than you that their ideas don’t count – trust me, they do.

Ask them for their ideas, you can even use a tool to collect these ideas. There are many tools that can do this, some more robust than others, but realistically you’ll want to start with a simple and free tool to test the waters.

Remember, the point of this is to increase employee engagement among millennials.

2. Be Transparent

Millennials, because they grew up with the internet and live on social media, are used to an incredible level of transparency.

They expect the same type of transparency at work, which is not normal for most traditional workplaces.

No one works well when they don’t have all the information for context, but especially millennials. They value that trust relationship so much more than others.

3. Offer Flexible Schedules

Did you know that 45% of Millennials would choose workplace flexibility over pay? Use that to your advantage, and offer them the ability to live and manage their life around their work.

Again, this all comes back to trust and respect. Trust them that they have your company’s best interests in mind and that they don’t need to worry about asking you to go for a doctor’s appointment.

4. Give Frequent Feedback

Everyone wants frequent feedback, but millennials are especially after frequent feedback.

For them, everything is instant. Netflix, Google, Social Media. This generation isn’t used to waiting around for anything.

You need to keep that in mind with work. Their attention spans are near zero, so you need to be consistently engaging them in a conversation.

5. Use Technology At Work

Millennials won’t respond well to outdated technologies or processes at work.

There are so many tools that you can use to help increase transparency and communication at work.

Slack, Skype, Facebook, Google Hangouts, any of these tools will do, but you need to remember that all millennials want is quick access to information and an easy way to get answers that they’re looking for.

You’ll notice that most of these ways are free and relatively easy to implement. All it takes is a commitment from leadership to help this group grow.

One of the biggest issues is the misunderstanding of who they are and what they’re like. Once you get past that and remove any biases you might have, you’ll be good to go.

Increase Productivity with a Stellar Home Office

by Kaitlin Krull

Some people think that working from home must be like a dream: wake up, have a cup of

coffee, and leisurely complete all our work with no effort at all. However, those of us who work

from home will tell those people that the experience is often fraught with distractions and less-

than-ideal work spaces. We at Modernize understand this struggle and have tons of ideas for

beautifying your work space while increasing productivity. If you are living with the same kind of

work-from-home problems, check out the following tips to help your home office go from

distracted to productive.

Keep work and home life separate

One of the most important things to do when setting up your home office is to clearly delineate

your work space. A home office is best kept in its own room if possible, otherwise in a quiet

corner of the house with access to natural light. Your home office should ideally have a layout

similar to that of a traditional office, with a desk, chair, and filing or storage units. If you are

interested in a diverse work environment, which is said to increase productivity, then consider

having a larger meeting table and a comfortable sofa or chairs for informal chats in addition to

your regular desk space.

Who Are America’s Affluents, And What Are Their Top Spending Categories?

Some 67.5 million American adults lived in a household with annual income of at least $100,000 (“affluents”), a 5 million (or 8%) increase from last year, details Ipsos in its latest annual study of the affluent population. As such, 28% of the adult population can be classified as affluent, as can 23% of all US households. So who are these affluents?

While Millennials (18-32) comprise 22% share of affluents, roughly two-thirds of affluent Millennials qualify on the basis of their parents’ income rather than their own. (The definition of affluence is based on living in a household with annual income of at least $100,000, rather than personal income of that level.) The most highly represented generation is Boomers (50-68), who represent 38% of the affluent population. (For details on advertising to this prized segment, see the MarketingCharts Debrief, “Advertising to Baby Boomers: The Why and How.”)

The affluent and wealthy also are far more likely than the general adult population to have postgraduate coursework (study or degree), with 31% of affluent adults and 43% of the wealthy having at least 5 years of college, versus 10% of the adult population at-large.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, these high-income adults also tend to be in managerial and professional positions: 63% of affluent adults and 66% of wealthy adults hold these roles, compared to 23% of adults in general.

When it comes to race/ethnicity, the data indicates that the affluent and wealthy adult populations are less diverse than the population at-large:

84% of affluents and 83% of wealthy adults are white, compared to 79% of general population adults;
6% of affluents and 5% of the wealthy are black/African American, versus 12% of the adult population; and
8% of affluents and the wealthy are of Hispanic descent, compared to 15% of the general adult population.

Past-year affluent spending was greatest for the following categories:

Automotive – including the purchase price of vehicles and motorcycles, as well as auto maintenance and supplies ($398 billion in aggregate spending; 20% of total spend);
Personal insurance ($227B; 11% share);
Home & garden ($208B; 10% share);
Education expenses ($201B; 10% share); and
Groceries ($193B; 9% share).
While total spend on automotive, education, alcoholic beverages and groceries grew the fastest, those aggregate increases were driven more by the increase in affluent population size than to average spending per affluent, which decreased across most categories.Sales Coaching

If You Have a Lot of Work to Do, Hope for Rain

ad weather is better than good weather at sustaining people’s attention and maintaining productivity, according to a study by Jooa Julia Lee of Harvard University, Francesca Gino of Harvard Business School, and Bradley R. Staats of the University of North Carolina. In a study of Japanese bank workers whose windows gave them a view of the weather, a 1-inch increase in daily rainfall was related to a1.3% decrease in worker completion time for data-entry tasks. When the weather is bad, workers are less distracted by thoughts of outdoor activities.

Hispanic Gen Xers Lead in Daily Tablet Usage

Hispanics are known to overindex in smartphone and tablet ownership. And while Hispanic millennials lead in smartphone content consumption, it’s the Gen Xers who are the most avid tablet users, with nearly two-thirds using such a device daily. It’s a different story among non-Hispanics, with those 60 and older dominating daily tablet activity, followed by Gen X users.

Narcissists Can Be Manipulated into Caring About the Environment

Although narcissists tend not to care about the societal benefits of pro-environmental activities, their attitudes change if their “green” behaviors are likely to be seen and admired by others, say Iman Naderi of Fairfield University and David Strutton of the University of North Texas. For example, narcissists considered an environmentally friendly laptop computer to be more attractive when they were told it was for use in public, rather than at home (3.7 versus 2.7 on a seven-point scale). Narcissism may be on the rise in the U.S., the researchers say: A nationwide analysis shows that college students’ scores on the Narcissistic Personality Inventory rose steadily between 1982 and 2009.
