Last week I was invited to conduct a conference with the Hotel Association of Los Cabos on the topics "Leadership and Time-Management". The majority of the attendees consisted of Hotel Directors, Executives and Human Resource Managers who were interested in receiving practical tools to become better at managing their time. But as the conference went on I addressed one of the main challenges many leaders are experiencing these days, the Millennials. We seem to have come to a point where almost every company is experiencing challenges with this generation which in my opinion is created due to a lack of understanding what the Millennials want. Ignoring this generation's point of view and refusing to acknowledge that they are operating differently carries the danger for companies to get out of business in the long run because in the years to come Millennials will dominate the workforce.
A gentleman in the conference stated that the Millennials are impossible. I responded that the true problem aren't the Millennials but the way the companies are operating. Often the bottom line and the internal structures are more important than the people itself. But companies are people, without people companies are left only with equipment and an empty building. What was even more interesting during this discussion was when attendees, who were clearly not a Millennial, requested that they want the companies to care about them too. Are we are entering a time of revolution in the way companies see and treat their employees? I believe that companies have to be willing to innovate and change their way of thinking. They have to be open to the change that will come. And it will come without a doubt because the Millennials won't change their ideas and needs. They will force us to come together and grow.
I will write a more detailed article during the month of July about the Millennials and their impact on today's workforce.
