Are your benefit packages attracting Millennials? How can you be sure? These are questions many employers ask these days, including Glassdoor. To find out what benefits Millennials really care about, we asked our own employees. The answers may surprise you, but one thing is for certain: benefits can make or break whether a candidate wants to work for you.
Ever have those days when you feel lonely? No reason to. I recently read in an article by Tinypulse, that our current population includes 1.44 billion Gen Xers, 1.72 billion members of the Y generation, and a staggering 2.52 billion generation Z people… Chances are, you currently manage or have managed employees from each generation (look out, Gen Z is entering the workforce too). In order to have a successful organization and increase your profits, you must deal differently with each generation. Being a millennial (otherwise known asGen Y) and a technology recruiter who talks to countless people of all ages and demographics, I have a bit of insight on the topic.
For the last few years there has been a trend in blogs, social updates, slideshows, and all forms of media concerning the millennial generation. Statements such as Millennials hop jobs too often, that they are inexperienced and uneducated, too philanthropic and that they care more about their friends and home life than their careers.
