The Millennial Challenge: Motivating the Millennial Generation In the Workplace
MetadataShow full item record
More than a paper to improve the understanding of the change in the worker and work environment, this is an assertion that work is an important component of our everyday lives. A window into what employees and employers value, and a demonstration that the way we perceive the work we do matters for how our work is experienced. The work environment and the way work is viewed have changed. Management's methods for motivating employees needs to change with it in order to reflect the shifting worker expectations of baby boomers to Gen- Y (i.e. millennials, generation Y). The change from working to survive to working for meaning and purpose alters the way in which employees are motivated. Complying with motivational models developed in earlier eras fails to understand the changing employee by applying a static one size fits all method of management. Employers, managers, and human resources must work to understand these new Gen-Y workers in order to create flexible engagement models that mix extrinsic and intrinsic rewards.
