Why New Employee Orientation Needs to Evolve
Your millennial new hires want to be fully engaged in their work and connected to their coworkers.
Like everything else, the new, young employees you are currently hiring are changing New Employee Orientation. Why is this?
“Millennials or Generation Y,” bring new ideas, innovation, and energy as they enter the workforce and their expectations and demands are unique. These “Millennials” look at life and work in a very different way.
They are natural networkers who use their immediate and engaging mobile and other electronic devices for everything. This means a series of “talking heads” parading around a meeting room is very boring and “old school” to them. In addition, what they really want to do is interact with their new co-worker peers and learn the inside scoop about what it’s really like to work there!
This newest generation also wants to be developed, mentored, and engaged. One of the premiere tools for helping young employees learn more about themselves and how to get along with others is the interactive and informational DiSC® Assessment.
Millennials willingly share information and information travels quickly through their communication networks. They absolutely love the challenge of learning more about their own personal styles and how they can interact with the style characteristics and preferences of their new co-workers and managers.
This is a great start to raising their interest level and offering tools to bridge that gap between these two talented and important work forces.
