‘The irony is a large proportion of Millennials will have better technology at home than what they are provided with in their workplace’ states Oktra’s Design Director Nic Pryke. Millennials have grown up using technology on a daily basis, and for them it is simply a given. It is therefore essential to provide the right technology to impress and support this generation.
Invest in tools which allow for easy and convenient engagement between employees such as communication apps or internal email and live chat platforms. Giving Millennials different options regarding technology will consequently impact their productivity levels and work ethic. Further to this, it shows that the company is constantly growing and improving.
Mixing business with pleasure
Research shows Millennials to have the highest stress levels of all generations.Creating an environment that encourages daily interaction and time outs reduces stress levels. Promoting a great culture is essential to successfully boosting productivity and focus.
This often means going beyond the standard ping pong table and incorporating activities within your office culture. Regular sporting events are an exciting method to bring fun into the workplace through a bit of healthy competition!
