Why Hire Millennials?
Millennials in the workforce often get a bad rap. As a generation, and as a generalization, they work hard and think critically. They can fuse complex tasks together and are the first generation that grew up knowing and understanding modern technology instead of learning it later in life. This makes Millennials ideal for temp jobs.
The “I” in “Millennial” Can be a Benefit
Millennials are aware that there is an “I” in the workplace. They understand their role, but they also understand who they are inside of that role. They’re individuals. And that's not a bad thing. It engenders a sense of responsibility – not just for one's work, but for one's growth. They'll be willing to grow that role, to see places where they can give you more value out of that role. In terms of labor for hire, they’ll give you a good return because of this attitude.
Millennials don't want approval, but they do want reinforcement. You might not sit them down at a job and watch them go independently. They might instead come back to you for feedback, looking for strengths to build on and bad habits to cut out of their work flow before they normalize them.
This is an asset in an employee, especially those working temp jobs. Millennials want to know what they're doing right and wrong – they constantly want to improve their processes. They're raised in a culture of efficiency. We dismiss this as impatience far too often. They recognize that both criticism and reinforcement play roles in becoming more efficient and growing in their abilities.
Rolling Communication into Workflow
Millennials understand that communication empowers them. This has taught Millennials that their voices are valuable, and this means they'll speak up. Issues that other generations may have overlooked, Millennials will tell you about. They expect that you'll want to know. Best of all, they can do this efficiently, wrapping communication into the workflow process instead of interrupting it. This can deliver remarkable improvements in the accuracy and quality of work that departments and teams produce.
Don’t believe the negative grumbling; Millennials have a lot to offer, and we’ll help connect you with the right ones looking for temp jobs.
