The New York Times may label 18-33-year-olds as “Generation Nice,” but Millennials in the workplace are poised for a takeover. But don’t worry, this takeover isn’t hostile – it’s one where “everyone plays nice and collaborates,” according to SMART CTO Warren Barkley on the Wired Insights blog.
Organizations may just be adopting BYOD, but Warren tells us that “Millennials are so far ahead of the collaboration curve that they have moved beyond BYOD…into a culture of BYOC (Bring Your Own Collaboration).”
All business organizations will be competing for the top 5-10% of this 80 million-strong workforce and Warren cites research that collaboration, “came up as the fourth most frequently mentioned criterion for seeking a best-of-breed employer.”
How has Warren personally seen the Millennial improve team culture? What is the Collaboration Quotient (CQ) and why will your recruiting and retention of Millennials depend on it? Check out his full blog post to find out. And stay tuned for more from Warren on this subject.
Is your company one of the organizations who fell into the 86% who took our Inspired Collaboration Assessment and is not optimized for collaboration? Are you wondering if you are ready for BYOC? Think about your Millennial recruiting needs and take the survey for a spin.
