Engaging Millennials

As of March there are more Millennials in the American work force than Generation Xers or Baby Boomers, according to the Pew Research Center. The consulting firm Accenture estimates that Millennials will spend $1.4 trillion annually by 2020, and they are expected to inherit about $30 billion in the coming years.

Is your company equipped to engage these 80 million Millennials that are at work and making spending decisions now and in the future?

Millennials will engage when they feel like they are adding value. If you help Gen M understand their talents and how to use them at work, bingo, you will create a culture of engagement. Levo offers a free Thinking Talent App that builds a talent profile with suggestions on how to best use your talents, who it’s best to collaborate with and what to work on to add value.

Why not encourage Millennial professionals to take the Thinking Talent challenge using the free App and build a development plan, share, compare and grow. These days engaging talent and building a profile doesn’t have to cost money but it will require time and attention—mentoring and coaching.

And, for some recent research on how best to market to Gen M this NY Times article offers some interesting insights.

Always on, Never done

The Center for Creative Leadership published a white paper noting:

Professionals, managers, and executives (PMEs) who carry smartphones for work report interacting with work 13.5 hours every workday, (72 hours per week including weekends).

Here are the highlights:

On average, that leaves us with about 3 hours on workdays for “discretionary” activities such as being with family, exercising, showering, and all of those chores outside of work that have to get done.

What is most surprising?

PMEs don’t blame technology for being “always on, never done.” Technology is the new band-aid to symptoms of more serious organizational dysfunctions.

What is really to blame?  Organizational inefficiencies: broken processes and systems, poor people and time management skills and lack of gutsy decision making at senior levels. The smartphone simply allows the organizational dysfunctions to continue by keeping everyone plugged in 24/7.

Are you always on, never done? Is your organization using technology as a band-aid instead of dealing with important organizational dysfunctions? Read the full report to find out. Or for a summary of time wasters and suggested fixes click here.

Happy Independence Day

Before we fire up the grill, open a cold one, light a sparkler, let’s give thanks for living in the land of the Free because of the Brave.

Cheers to spreading appreciation and gratitude as we celebrate our independence.
