With the "job for life" culture well and truly a thing of the past, how do you attract, engage and retain your employees and particularly the famous millenials?
There have been so many studies done on this to try and identify a golden wand to achieve retention and Purpose and Values are consistently coming top of the pile.
Like everything else, you can't play lip service to these. Values are not something that hang on your office walls. They must be an integral part of your team and you have to recruit new employees against them if you are to succeed.
The office environment remains important but Purpose and Values are your key wins to attracting and retaining Millenials.
Job seekers entering today’s workplace are used to company websites listing bottomless snacks and ping pong tables before health benefits. The perks of an office kegerator and a game room with comfy couches no longer set companies apart. Just like you can’t buy genuine social media fans, companies can’t buy loyal employees with superfluous perks. Instead, by demonstrating your values, being transparent and recognizing your employees, you can attract and retain an engaged millennial workforce.
