Since business is too complex of a topic for one person to master on his own, “we must challenge our leaders to expand their knowledge and share it with their teams.”
Unfortunately, most companies are very homogeneous and focus on building expertise in their industry thriving on mitigating risk to deliver within cost, schedule and performance. As a result, we tend to hire those who think and work in that mindset.
To buck this trend, “as leaders we need to expose ourselves to ideas from outside the industry. Similarly, when we are in the process of developing new ideas, we should include individuals who have different educational and experiential backgrounds.” Millennials are the perfect choice.
According to a new poll, younger workers do in fact care less about money and more about fulfillment and in order to develop “best in class” organizations Strategic hiring, Engagement & Organizational Health is a priority.
The United States Census Bureau, using birth dates ranging from 1982 to 2000, stated the estimated number of U.S. millennials in 2015 was 83.1 million people.
In 2016, the Pew Research Center found that millennials surpassed Baby Boomers to become the largest living generation in the United States. By analyzing 2015 U.S Census data they found there were 75.4 million millennials, based on Pew’s definition of the generation which ranges from 1981 to 1997, compared to 74.9 million Baby Boomers.
