Generation Y Workers Need to Understand Performance on the Job Matters - Jane & Marcus Buckingham

Generation Y Workers Need to Understand Performance on the Job Matters - Jane & Marcus Buckingham | Positive futures | Scoop.it

   We’ve all heard about how millennials have been raised by “helicopter parents,” who hover over them and protect them from criticism and disappointment. The result is a “teacup” generation of young people who may appear outwardly perfect, but are easily shattered.

 

   For years, they have regularly been given pats on the back, often just for showing up. They made it to the end of the soccer season – fantastic, everyone gets a trophy! They took a test – how amazing!

 

   When they finally join the workforce, it’s no wonder members of Gen Y expect a promotion just for being on time to work for six weeks straight.

   If we want to (p)reframe this generations mindset, it’s necessary to first understand their perspective, especially in the following four ways:

1. Participation is enough;

2. Everything is customized;

3. Constant, immediate feedback is required;

4. Change must be embraced.

High-Energy Workplaces Can Save America

Maybe not perfect but I found the 12 questions used by Gallup quite objective in their attempt to link engagement with productivity: 

 

They claim that innovation, entrepreneurship, authentic sales growth, new customers, job growth — all the things that every company needs most — are sparked and inspired by the relationships between managers and employees that these 12 items measure.

 

I think what is important is to measure the answers before doing anything, identify with the employees maybe 2 or 3 points that impact the most their performance and measure again after changes have been implemented.

 

What do you think ?
