Bookmarked: Millenials In The Workplace…
My friend Yeni sent me this lovely video and I just had to share it with you guys! After I saw the video, I went on to stalk the speaker, Simon Sinek and I am in love with this man’s mind. I should think of getting me one of his books but if you are interested in getting one for yourself, here is the one I would recommend.
From The Website:
“A delightfully illustrated fable about a boy who takes a stand for what he believes in on the playground serves as the backdrop for the book’s broader message: we are more likely to overcome our struggles and difficulties to find what we are looking for when we are willing to take others with us on the journey. Sharing some of Simon’s best ideas in an entirely new way, this little book inspires readers to seek out a brighter future — and build it together. This is the kind of book you’ll give to your friends, family, and colleagues who have started asking their own questions about what a more joyful and purposeful work life could bring.”
This man spoke to my soul in this video, I don’t want to give too much away but we all need to watch this video. A little note from his website about the workplace:
“The Millennial Question
Give people a reason to come to work, not just a place to go to work.
Millennials want what every generation that has come before them wants — to feel that they matter, that their work matters and that they are contributing to something bigger than themselves. The only difference is that Millennials are the first generation with the guts to ask for it and to expect it.
The trends show that Millennials aren’t loyal to their employers — that they expect to jump ship every two to three years for the next new job or opportunity. This trend is a symptom of the environments they are in and not convention. In others words, this Millennial cycle can be broken. The reason Millennials are using their employers is because their employers are using them. It’s not that they want to leave, they simply don’t have a good reason to stay. Make them feel valued and valuable and you will get them for life.”
