Fact or Fiction? – There’s no point in investing time in Millennials and Gen Z employees. They are too disruptive, demanding and won’t stay for more than a year anyway.
Sure, the workforce has changed over the last 30 years, but the answer is not to find more people your age to staff your business.
The challenge is to help managers figure out how to create a workforce that harnesses the energies and talents of employees, including younger ones, and converts those energies into profits.
Contrary to popular belief, the young people entering the workforce are generally not flighty and do not want to skip from job to job every year or two.
In fact, research continues to show that, just like the rest of us, the younger workforce wants nothing better than to find an employer where they can do meaningful work, see the value of their contribution, learn, and grow.
That said – the younger generations do have less tolerance for bullshit and are not likely to put down roots with an organization that treats them as less valued employees because of their age.
There’s no point in investing time in Millennials and Gen Z employees – FICTION
The most valuable competitive advantage for any business is to staff with star employees who perform better and stay longer. Even the young ones!
