How to engage Generations Y & Z in your company

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, August 28, 2013 1:42 AM

Despite their reputation for being pampered, a close look at the Generation Ys (a.k.a. Millennials) in your company may reveal more pragmatism than privilege.


Recent surveys reveal that since 2006 Millennials have become more realistic about job expectations. In fact, Gen Ys have the lowest expectations of all four workforce generations when it comes to “soft” workplace benefits, such as a pleasant work environment, liking the people they work with, or having flexible hours.


Heavily scheduled and conditioned to achieve since childhood, Gen Y employees are natural multi-taskers, well-prepared to handle extra work. Tell the young people in your firm that it’s time to be entrepreneurial inside the organization. Ask them to show you how they can be useful and what extra projects they can take on. Expect them to rise to the challenge, and many of them will.

We live in a world where information travels quickly and powerfully. Nothing happens—good or bad—without the world knowing it.

From the article:  Delegation is a "must have" for sustainable success and your sanity! Commit to delegating. Keep the important activities that play to your Strengths and delegate other performance driving activities to the Strengths of others with clear responsibility and authority. Done well, everyone wins; people grow and productivity increases. When you delegate to peoples Strengths your organization grows faster because we grow the fastest in areas we feel strong.  Recognize often the behaviors you need to see and before you know it everyone is winning.

A good article for leaders to read today.  

 

(From the article): Being seen as trustworthy is one of the key building blocks towards becoming a great leader. If you fail in this regard, you risk being seen as a hypocrite or inauthentic. Sir John Parker, Chairman of Anglo American was an example of a highly regarded and trusted leader: “Good leaders walk the talk,” he says, “They’re consistent in their behaviour. They live out the words. I can think of no higher risk to a leader’s credibility than not living out the words.”

Top 10 Ways to Destroy Motivation at Work

Top 10 Ways to Destroy Motivation at Work | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

Want to know how to destroy motivation at work? These key factors, attitudes, and behaviors destroy motivation at work. It doesn't have to be that way. 

 

A sample from the list of 10:

 Make rules for the many because of the behavior of a few. Organizations need policies and rules to create a legal, ethical, effective workplace. They do not need a policy to solve every problem. 

 

Focus on mistakes and errors no matter how trivial they are in comparison with successes.
This is especially a problem at weekly meetings and during periodic performance evaluations. Managers must provide balanced feedback, but let’s get real. If an employee is making mistakes most of the time, why not fire the employee? The job must be a terrible fit for the employee’s skills and capabilities. To dwell only on problem areas destroys the employee’s confidence and self-esteem, makes the employee more error-prone, and makes your organization wonder why they promoted you to management.

 

Hold meetings, coaching sessions, and performance reviews in which the manager does the majority of the talking.
Only a rare employee will find a work environment in which he or she is talked at motivating. But, it happens frequently. Even in organizations that encourage employee involvement, managers are not always skilled at discussing performance with employees. The manager may be afraid that if he stops talking, the employee will make demands he can’t fulfill. The manager may

Claudia DeSalvo's curator insight, August 16, 2013 2:55 PM

Communication is key, especially when it comes to giving feedback. Talking at people isn't as effective as taking the time to build a structure for relationships.

 

Understanding is a must, especially when it comes to building trust and engagement. Do your employees know what they need to do to be successful? Giving them adequate resources is a crucial part in ensuring top quality results from them. The article gives a good question to ask yourself:


“What is the most important thing these employees want to know, what is the best way to encourage dialogue and how would they be most comfortable sharing input?”

 

After taking the employees into consideration, think of good ways to get them to share their ideas. This will be an opening for formal[printed] and informal[a quick convo] feedback. The feedback should be respected by both parties, and should be responded to in a timely manner. This makes it so that the employee feels valued. After exchanging feedback, you should continue regularly sharing ideas. Communication is best when its two-way.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, August 19, 2013 6:40 AM

Great scoop Claudia.  The only thing I would add to the article is that the supervisor should ensure to request additional feedback from her/his direct reports, in addition to getting feedback from established organiazation channels like suggestion boxes, etc.  

 

The reason this is so important is becuase direct report have great specific insight that can help the supervisor learn even more from the feedback.  

 

Frrom the article:

 

Act on feedback – Highly engaged employees are enthused about their organization and believe they can positively influence its success. Acting on employee feedback and highlighting the impact employees make is a strong engagement builder. Be sure that all employees know how their colleagues’ suggestions or ideas are being implemented.


Regularly sharing results and requesting additional feedback creates predictable, consistent two-way communication that encourages employees to take ownership and understand their ideas are valued by the organization.
