Cultivating a Human Resources Department for Tech-Savvy Millennials

Every human resources  department is
pulling its hair out trying to cultivate the right workplace for the newest
crop of tech savvy millennials. These are the employees who will set your
company ahead of the curve through applying new technology. However, these new
employees definitely do not respond to traditional HR tactics or an old-school
work environment.

Cultivating a Results-Oriented
Workplace

Millennials have little use for seniority in
a workspace. If older employees refuse to update their efficiency using newer
technologies, millennials will revolt. Human resources must create a clear
message: Performance gets rewarded above all, and there is plenty of room for
inventive employees to make extra money.

Creating an Authentic Workspace

Millennials are more concerned with a company’s
authenticity than any previous generation of workers. Authenticity gets
verified through sites like Glassdoor, so if you are lying about your company
culture, this generation will find out and boycott you. Human resources should
communicate how the company is interacting with and giving back to the
community that houses it.

Cultivating New Tech

There is no use for a millennial to learn all
of the new ways to increase efficiency if you set your company procedures in
stone. Millennials, as a rule, will avoid this kind of company. Human resources
must help the company cultivate the reputation for new innovations. Let your
new employees use their training!

Leaving the Useless Stuff Alone

Staying in line with a completely
results-oriented culture means putting less pressure on employees to dress a
certain way or keep rigid office hours. Companies such as Google, Apple and
Facebook continue to increase efficiency party because of the autonomy they
give employees in these areas.
