After more than a decade of effort, American businesses still have not figured out how to successfully motivate, inspire – and keep – millennial workers.
According to a new and comprehensive Gallup study, employees 20 to 36 years old are the least engaged generation in the workplace by far. On top of that, 21 percent quit their jobs last year, and 60 percent say they’re floating their resumés right now!
For all the companies that tried to win over their “Gen Y” workers by paying down their student loan bills, introducing free energy drinks and making the hoody acceptable office attire, these stats may seem galling. Perhaps we should all just accept that this is simply a group of needy and entitled people who’ll never be truly happy or loyal at work?
Not so fast. Gallup’s research reminds us that millennial workers grew up very differently than previous generations, and have a unique set of values, needs – and worldview – as a result.
What’s evident is that this is no slacker class, nor are they hardwired to be disloyal. What they are is demanding. They know very clearly what they want in exchange for their work, and have proved very willing to keep looking until they find it. Remarkably, this is a generation of workers that rejects traditional ways, and fully expects their bosses and organizations to adapt to them.
It’s a stunning fact that millennials already represent 40 percent of the American workforce – and that number will nearly double in just 10 more years. While some of us may have resisted changing how we lead in response to the demands of millennial workers, the conclusion of the research is that we must act now. Importantly, the most progressive organizations are already on their way.

"There are hundreds of things written daily regarding changes, reforms and new research in the profession of education. But much of this comes from outside entities (researchers, politicians, parents, leaders and others) aimed at educators. It’s time for educators to own the changes, thus owning the profession."

"Mobile devices have become truly addictive.We use mobile technology for almost everything – to wake up early, track the calories burnt, find routes to places, jot down important information, order food, book tickets, read news – the list is endless.This addictive nature of mobile devices can be leveraged to engage your employees with mobile learning bites in a classroom training program."
Remember though that finding the right tool is important, but how you structure and design interaction with the content is way more important. Taking classroom activities and materials and placing them on a web-based platform and expecting them to work is sure way to disappoint students. You need to think carefully about how the student will engage with the materials and how the materials relate to each other to ensure that your materials don’t just test the students’ knowledge and abilities, but that they guide and enable the student to hypothesise and make and confirm deductions in order to encourage deeper levels of autonomous learning.
