Employee Engagement isn’t what it used to be. It’s no longer the once a year 1-on-1 check in with your supervisor. In the Millennial World it’s about constant feedback and collaboration. It doesn’t need to be a video game but it can’t be a chore. Today’s Employee Engagement needs to allow employees the social capability used in their personal lives. It’s about sharing ideas, creating communities within a community, recognizing a job well done with a click of the mouse, being a part of a brand, and having a path that enhances one’s skills or sets a career plan in action.
The Millennial Workforce live in a world where information flows in real time. For these individuals it’s about having constant information that’s easily accessible. Unfortunately most organizations treat information as intellectual property and distribute it with limitations. Millennial see information as open source code.These individuals want to share ideas and this sharing can and will create and improve products and fix problems.
To the new Millennialworkforce corporations need to leverage the latest disruptive technology and establish an environment of openness to create a winning culture. From first glance this dramaticchange might seem unachievableor even painful, but, it has many rewards.
