Engaging Millennials

Vivek Iyyani
Select Preferred Format

By 2025, Millennials will form 75% of the global workforce and more than half of them (58% of global
Millennials) are living in Asia! As this huge demographic surges towards becoming a substantial
contributor to Asia’s workforce, organisations continue to face engagement and retention challenges
while balancing the need to stay relevant in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world.
Archaic methods of management do not deliver success with the new breed of employees. Instead, the outdated model leaves Millennials uninspired and unmotivated to produce results. Like any generation of workers, performance lies in management—if you're not getting what you need from your Millennials, it's time to learn how to lead them the way they need to be led. To get the best out of Millennials, it is imperative for leaders to modify their current management style.
While the pop culture narrative would have us believe that Millennials are entitled, lazy, spoiled brats — Millennials are the generation of change: highly adaptive, bright, and quick to take on a challenge. If the different generations can learn how to collaborate in a way that capitalises on their strengths and compensates for their weaknesses, it will inspire a knowledge sharing inevitably encourages the cross-pollination of ideas which can spark major innovation. Best practices and proven strategies from Google, Netflix, LinkedIn, and other top employers provide real-world models for effective management, and new research on first-wave versus second-wave Millennials helps you parse the difference between your new hires and more experienced workers. You’ll learn why flex time, social media, dress code, and organizational structure are shifting, and answer the all-important question: How do we engage Millennials? Millennials are the product of a different time, with different values, different motivations, and different wants. This book shows you how to bring out their best and discover just how much they’re really capable of.
