Millennials are taking over the workforce

Millennials have different expectations than any other working generation so far.

Millennials have different expectations than any other working generation so far.

According to The Washington Post, Millennials are now the largest generational component of the labor force. 

With more than one in three American workers aged 18 to 34 currently in the workforce, the force itself has changed. As the baby boomer generation continues to retire, how can employers attract the growing Millennial force into their ranks?

  • Be flexible: The new workforce knows many employers are more flexible than before, and they expect you to be too. Leave room for negotiation when it comes to salary, work hours and benefits.
  • Help them develop: A recent study from Accenture indicated that 80 percent of 2014 graduates expected to be formally trained in their first job, but over half said they received no training at all. Investing in employees lets them know you're interested in them remaining in the company and bringing more to the table than what they arrived with.
  • Give feedback: Millennials want feedback, and they want it to be consistent and helpful. Having only one yearly performance review will hurt your newest workforce in the long run. Ensure both praise and critiques are given in monthly meetings or email check-ins for best results.
  • Keep them interested: According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Millennials usually only remain at each job for an average of 18 months. Don't let this number scare you away from investing in a recent college graduate or transitioning worker. Millennials are apt to remain at one job when they are vested, challenged and feel as if they are making a difference.
