I recently conducted a survey with my consulting and coaching clients to learn more about what motivates their Millennial employees. Below are the main results in how older generations are motivating Millennials and what Millennials feel actually motivates them.
Input from the Baby Boomers and Gen Xers on what they found effective in motivating their Millennial employees:
Work / reputation:
Meaningful and impactful projects:
While it is easy to see these motivators as Millennial-centric, they’re not. Individuals across generations want to feel valued, want their employers to invest in their professional development, and also want to work in a healthy collaborative culture. Millennials are not silent on the issues that are important to them and that is a positive force for change in the workplace for everyone.
