“We Didn’t Give Ourselves the Trophies” — Millennials

“We Didn’t Give Ourselves the Trophies” — Millennials | Inspiration Hub | Scoop.it

If I had to vote for the most unfair cliché to describe the supposed problem other generations have with millennials, I’d say it’s the concept of young people being the “trophy generation.” Although many of today’s twenty- and thirtysomethings did receive trophies and praise more than other generations, here is why I believe the stereotype is unfair. As one millennial client recently pointed out to me, “We didn’t give the trophies to ourselves.”

The Keys to Managing the Generational Shift in Today’s Workforce

The Keys to Managing the Generational Shift in Today’s Workforce | Inspiration Hub | Scoop.it

We’re now making workforce history as Millennials have become the dominant demographic in the US, outnumbering Baby Boomers 80 million to 76 million. There is a resulting generational shift in the workforce currently underway, and gathering steam. However, as Baby Boomers delay retirement in increasing numbers, friction is occurring as growing numbers of Millennials enter the workforce and find themselves at odds with their Boomer managers and Gen X counterparts. In some cases, they’re competing for the same positions, bringing a different point of view and different work ethic with them.

Is a Millennial defined by an age, or by a way of thinking?

Is a Millennial defined by an age, or by a way of thinking? | Inspiration Hub | Scoop.it

By 2020 millennials will comprise of 50% of the global workforce - that’s a hefty chunk of the population, and certainly the future of the meetings and events industry, so we need to take this demographic seriously. That being said, in many ways I would use the term Millennials to describe a much bigger demographic then one that is purely defined by age.  What I am seeing in our industry is a demographic that is comprised of a new way of thinking, and that demographic isn't always of the age group that is a millennial.  In today’s world, we need to look at who portrays those characteristics, and not just define this by age.

Engaging Millennials: Unleashing a Generation in the Workforce

Engaging Millennials: Unleashing a Generation in the Workforce | Inspiration Hub | Scoop.it

Millennials is a strange word people use – often with some derision – to refer to a younger generation of workers. Many falsely believe they’re different from other generations, and that something might be wrong with them. What’s probably driving much of this sense of enigma is that Millennials are less engaged at work than older generations. Much ink has been spilled on the topic of engaging Millennials more.

How to engage Millennials in your next event

How to engage Millennials in your next event | Inspiration Hub | Scoop.it

This is a topic that interests us a lot: in our company we’re all Millennials (the average age is 26!) so we jumped at the opportunity. We shared the panel with Sarah Baldock (be-good events), Toby Lewis (Live Group), Juraj Holub (sli.do) and with Alistair Davies (Davies Tanner) who did a great job at moderating the session. We discussed the key aspects that must be taken into account when planning meetings for different generations.
