When managing millennials: how to let data guide you
Over the last five years, it’s been difficult to ignore the impact that younger generations of workers have had on the way work gets done. With 92 million millennials in the US, their unique work styles and preferences are transforming the world of work. To successfully navigate the demographic nuances and enable all employees to thrive, managers must not only take the time to understand broad generational trends, but also the individuals that compromise them.
When managing millennials and other generations, organizations that are able to tap into behavioral data to understand their workforce at the individual and group levels will be in a better position to hire, develop, and retain talent in the future. This scientifically-valid approach measures behavioral drives and motivating needs to give valuable, actionable insight into the five most common workplace behaviors that impact performance:
- Communication: Does the individual tend to connect quickly (or not) with others?
- Decision-making: What is the individual’s comfort level with risk?
- Team participation: Is the individual more task or people-oriented?
- Taking action: Is the individual more proactive or responsive when it comes to taking action?
- Delegation: Does the individual prefer to delegate or be delegated to, and how formal or informal does the individual prefer this process to be?
