Millennials are increasingly becoming a larger part of the workforce. If you want to stay on top of hiring trends and have a company that’s able to advance, you will need to make your company a hub for millennial innovation and creativity. Here’s how you can make your company millennial-friendly:
Hire on Social Media
Millennials live on social media, so if you want your company to be millennial-friendly, try reaching out to them through that platform. You can use social media as a way to inform millennials about job postings, or you can even take it one step further by actually reaching out to them via a specific social media platform such as Twitter or Facebook.
Have a Flexible Schedule
Millennials love flexibility, because they have such a wide range of interests. If you really want your company to be millennial-friendly, you’re going to need to give them a flexible schedule. Before you shake your head no and refuse, please keep in mind that there are different ways to accommodate flexibility. For example, you could have employees choose different days and hours off so it’s not too many at the same time – as long as Millennials are doing the choosing, they’re happy.
Assign Responsibility Based on Merit, Not Age/Time
If you want your company to be millennial-friendly, you’re going to need to assign responsibility based on merit as opposed to time or age. Millennials value the here and now; if they work hard, they expect to be rewarded for it. Therefore, if you strive to have your company give responsibility or reward based on tasks completed or effort shown, you will be well on your way to being millennial-friendly.
Give Everyone an Equal Voice
One of the biggest ways you can make your company a great place for Millennials to work is by giving everyone an equal voice within the company. While this doesn’t mean that everyone has to make decisions, it does mean that everyone listens to what everyone else has to say in terms of opinions or feedback about how to complete certain things. You’ll find that this will make all of your employees that much more collaborative with each other.
