Millennials: the secret weapon.

Millennials have a bad rap, it’s a fact. Words commonly associated with them are “lazy” “entitled” and “selfish”, just to name a few. But is that really what they are, or is there some untapped potential behind the superficial? The Millennial generation was the first to grow up with the experience of the technology boom. This rapid development of technology caused this group to become obsessed with electronics from a young age.

As the 77 million Millennials (defined as those born between 1977 and 1995) continue to enter the work force, they are seen as either an asset or a hindrance, but like it or not, businesses need to ensure they “play well with others” and that Boomers learn how to tap into them as resources. Millennials are tech savvy. This fact makes them an asset to any business. We live in a world where technology is king, so in order to keep up with the changing landscape; you need a Millennial who understands the ins and outs of the tech world. Business has switched from paper to screen, and in order to keep up with this change you need a team behind you that understands and influences this change. Millennials have developed a keen skill to transition business from face-to-face communication to connecting on an online platform. While face-to-face communication is still valued, technology is pushing businesses to develop their online presence just as much as in person. Through use of social media customers can feel their voice is heard, and the company can connect with anyone, in any location, in a matter of seconds. This type of development sets Millennials apart from any generation.

According to Inc., Millennials are now the single largest group within the work force, and will soon become the biggest consumer group as well. This means that Millennials will determine which direction your business will grow in. Rather than shaming them for their different style of working, try to gain a better understanding of why they operate the way they do, and see if it is more successful than the way it has been done in the past.

The traditional and structured work setting is slowly turning into a more creative, open-minded environment that Millennials thrive in. Millennials offer a fresh outlook that can be crucial for pushing your business in the right direction. This new way of thinking will help your business grow with the times, rather than be stuck in the past. Out of the box thinkers will push your business to the next level by gaining new perspectives in the workplace. Other generations may label Millennials as “slackers”, but in reality they just have a different way of doing business. As the world is evolving, so is the traditional business style. Because this style of work is different than in the past, outsiders may consider it as being “lazy”, but in reality Millennials are working harder than ever.

It’s no secret that Millennials can have a tendency to be obsessed with being successful, as seen by this generation holding some of the youngest millionaires to date. The problem most people have with Millennials version of success is that they can work in a less traditional manner and be successful. Their drive, although not one that most people are accustomed to, encourages this generation to put in the work and dedication needed to make their dreams a reality.

Millennials are the secret weapon that most businesses need in order to stay afloat. They bring a new work culture that is geared towards progression in all forms. Millennials want everything easier, faster, and better, which means they are driven to work hard to make this outlook on life come into fruition. Millennials are the future of the workforce, and are key players in the success of the business world.
