Here’s What Millennials Allow Us to Do Better

Kim Moore - What Millennials Allow Us to Do Better

Millennials get a lot of unfair bad press. The media often dismisses them as entitled, whiny, and lazy, especially when compared to previous generations. The truth is that Millennials in the workplace have a variety of strengths that others do not. When properly motivated, their strengths can be harnessed and they can help to push your business and your other employees to do better in every aspect of their jobs.

Let’s take a look at one of the “weaknesses” that are thrown at Millennials. “They spend all of their time on computers and phones surfing social media. How lazy.” Well, in a few short years, social media went from just being an opportunity for businesses to being absolutely essential for businesses. If your company doesn’t have an active Twitter feed, Facebook page, LinkedIn presence, and attractive website, a huge number of customers won’t know how to reach out to you. Millennials instinctively know this, and they know how to reach out to customers online who are looking for the exact services that you provide. Social media is simply a form of communication, and it’s something that generation thrives on.

This innate sense of communication comes through in other ways in the workplace as well. Millennials are flexible team players who crave a collaborative environment. Many of the skills that have been taught in “team building” exercises and retreats in years past, Millennials do naturally. If confronted with a problem, they tackle it together. This spirit can positively infect the entire workplace, bringing together the experience and knowledge of previous generations with the enthusiasm and creativity of Millennials—all for the good of your company!
