Was Chrysler stereotyping millennials with its design of Portal, which is “designed by millennials for millennials”, offering in-vehicle wireless, fast electric charge that’s good for at least 250 miles, incredibly flexible and customizable seating? Futuristic or over the top, there’s no doubt that the generation dubbed as millennials is undoubtedly tech-savvy and can be expected to be engaged by a futuristic model of SUV.
Apart from being tech-savvy or tech-dependent, millennials are expected to be creative, resourceful and entrepreneurial. Their social interaction is more over social media and mobile connectivity than face-to-face. Millennials are used to economic uncertainties and will happily change jobs, without worrying about the larger picture. They crave self-improvement and want to do work which can change the world, on their own terms and plan to have great fun while doing so. This may also be the reason why many of them are still living with their parents while the job market is unable to fill open positions.
According to Pew Research Center, as of the first quarter of2015, millennials were the largest generation in the American workforce, and with that come a high level of influence in the workplace.
They’re also the future of the labor force and hence, they need employers to engage them by providing a work environment that suits their needs. One thing is for sure, they’re not daunted by technology, and they actually thrive on it. If you have millennials at your workplace or are facing high levels of millennial attrition, you may consider gaining better insight into their needs and prepare to meet them.
Millennials are a part of your workplace and its future. They’re going to be the major customers of your business too. So make sure you bring in the necessary technological innovations to lure them in and keep them engaged over time.
