Attendance on Demand Releases White Paper on Managing Millennials
Attendance on Demand announces the release of "Managing Millennials: 4 Key Strategies for Becoming an Employer of Choice." This white paper discusses employees who were born between the early 80's and early 2000's or Millennials. By 2020, Millennials are estimated to be 50 percent of the nation's workforce. Their different work styles and career paths are an unknown for most employers looking to hire them.
"What do Millennials want from their employer?" said Beth Baerman, Director of Corporate Communications at Attendance on Demand. "Millennials have values and expectations that will factor prominently in organizations looking to stay competitive through the next decade."
The white papers details four main strategies to consider when attracting Millennials. They are: Flex Time, Mobility, Employee Self Service (ESS) and Alerts and Notifications. Employee time and attendance systems can help. Flexible schedules are a key benefit to have when attracting Millennials since they value work-life balance. Mobility is required in the technology they use. ESS helps empower Millennials to manage their time and productivity. Alerts and Notifications allow for multi-tasking and are advantageous due to Millennials preferences of digital interactions instead of face-to-face communication.
Employers have a lot to think about when attracting, engaging, and retaining the Millennial Generation. This white paper provides plenty of food for thought.
