Millennial at Work – Two ways employers can retain talent

Here are two ways employers can retain millennial talent:millennial

1. Put yourself in the shoes of the potential employee.

“No matter how passionate you are about your company, it’s important to always look outside a person’s job responsibilities and guide them to focus on areas where they want to develop themselves in,” said Aaron Harvey of Ready Set Rocket.

If you’re hiring a new employee, take a second and put yourself in their place and consider these questions:

-Will I be able to use the skills I have to effectively do this job?

-Will the skills I have currently improve from this job?

-Will I gain skills that will be useful to me later in my career?

-Do I have the opportunity to learn additional skills that aren’t required for this position?

-Will this job open up opportunities for me in the future?

-Do I fit in with the other employees here?

2. Help employees see their future with the company.

“Your employees will want to be in your shoes one day,” said Harvey, “help them paint that picture. If you’re not tying someone to the big picture, then you’re not doing it right, you need to let them see what they are trying to achieve.”

Finding and retaining millennial talent can be an arduous task, but using these tips can make the process a little easier.
