I wish I had written the article by Joel Bomgar titled “Plug Into Millennials’ Tech Needs” myself.
He has four key recommendations to help adapt the workplace to the millennial generation. They are:
- Offer Real-Time Response
- Support a “Bring Your Own Devices” IT Equipment Strategy
- Enable Anywhere Access
- Foster Collaborative Communication
He states boldly:
“to recruit and retain top talent, businesses have no choice but to adapt”
I couldn’t agree more. And, I think it’s an impossibility for this to occur on any large scale at big employers within a reasonable time. It’s too hard to manage in the procedural way most organizations work, and they’re too far behind.
This “state of IT” is accelerating the changes to the makeup of this thing we call work. It’s blurring the lines between work, play, home… and we’re going to need new tools to manage our career-life balance going forward.
If you’re interested in my ideas around creating a more fulfilling career by learning to balance these different areas of your life, sign up for my newsletter and we’ll let you know when I have my first seminar (it’s in March, so it’s soon).
