Lisa Evans of Fast Company reports on the impact millennials are having on the workplace, as they become leaders of the office.
Baby boomers transformed the workplace through an employee support program, while Generation X left its imprint on corporate America by facilitating an informal workplace. Now, author Chip Espinoza believes millennials will create a people-first workplace--less formal but with more communication.
Millennial managers will avoid formal annual performance reviews, replacing them with more frequent and informal feedback systems that allow for better communication between managers and employees.
Millennials are willing to try new things, challenge processes, and think differently about a situation. They’re also very supportive and will be more likely to sponsor employees, providing them with learning and growth opportunities.
