IBM Study: The Real Story Behind Millennials in the Workplace

IBM today announced that pretty much everything you thought you knew about Millennials could well be wrong. A new IBM study reveals much of the hype about Millennial employees simply isn’t true. They aren’t the “lazy, entitled, selfish and shallow” workers that many believe them to be.

The results of the global, multigenerational study “Myths, Exaggerations and Uncomfortable Truths” found that the fundamental distinction between Millennials and older employees is their digital proficiency, which comes from growing up immersed in a digital world. But, for things like career goals, employee engagement, preferred leadership styles and recognition, the study shows that Millennials share many of the same attitudes as Gen X and Baby Boomer employees.

By 2020, Millennials will be approximately 50 percent of the U.S. workforce (1). So within the next five years, Millennials will wield increasing influence over organizations’ decisions, move in to leadership roles and basically take over the workforce.

Today’s business leaders need to begin planning for this shift by creating a workplace environment that will maximize the Millennial generation’s unique strengths. To do so, they first need to separate fact from fiction on what Millennial employees are really all about.

 

Myth 1: Millennials’ career goals and expectations are different from their elders (i.e. unrealistic).

Myth 2: Millennials need endless praise and think everyone should get a trophy.

Myth 3: Millennials are digital addicts with no boundaries between work and play

Myth 4: Millennials can’t make a decision without crowdsourcing.

Myth 5: Millennials are more likely to jump ship if a job doesn’t fulfill their passions.

How to Find Truly Fulfilling Work

How to Find Truly Fulfilling Work

http://99u.com/workbook/38783/how-to-find-truly-fulfilling-work

“How do you find a job that, on your deathbed, you won’t regret having devoted your professional life to? This short film created by The School of Life offers a handy guide to figuring out what work is right for you. Based on the ideas of philosopher and author Roman Krznaric, the video walks you through six main guiding principles for determining what career will be deeply meaningful:

Accept that being confused about your career choices is normal. Confusion and fear are natural.

Know yourself. For 99% of us, knowing what we want to do doesn’t arise spontaneously.

Think a lot. It could take a year or more of sustained daily reflection to sort out exactly what professional path to pursue.

Try something. Take small, non-irrevocable steps to gather more information. Investigate through side projects.

Reflect on what makes people unhappy. Business is about solving other people’s problems. Work is a chance to serve.

Be confident. The difference between success and failure is the courage to give it a go.”
