I recently read an article by a “millennial expert” on ways to keep that generation happily engaged and on-board.
I have a lot of concerns about her take on generational differences as well as the quality of the list (which included free snacks or meals, on-site fitness centers, and cell phone stipends). I believe it’s by far more effective not to generalize and recommend that instead of “one size fits all,” you ask your employees what they want and/or value so you can customize your perks, rewards, and incentive programs to meet each individual’s exact needs. (An easy way to do this is to get your people to complete our “Employee Data Sheet.” For a complimentary copy, email firstname.lastname@example.org with EDS in the subject line.)
