Leading Millennials

Have you noticed what is happening at your workplace? Have a little look around you now? Are a lot of your colleagues looking a lot younger than you? Does it seem that your workplace is full of ‘bright young things’ who see the world differently from you? That’s because your workplace is increasingly a place dominated by 20- and 30-somethings who may indeed see the world quite differently from the way you do. What has started inevitably as a trickle is about to become a torrent and with this new tide of Millennials (born c.1980-2000) arriving into the workplace, will come a scouring effect on organisations. It’s about time.

Leaders finally realise the importance of a fully engaged workforce. Now they should learn what practices drive and sustain happy employees.

It is time to abandon the idea of the work-life balance. Work and life don’t exist in separate, opposing spheres. In a world of 24 hour connectivity, the distinction between the two is increasingly impossible to make out.

If you want to inspire the next generation of workers--and attract them to your company--new research shows that nothing works like a rock-solid mission statement.

Millennials think the best leaders possess an overarching "sense of purpose," according to a study released on Wednesday from consulting and accountancy firmDeloitte.

Your employee-recognition program may be doing more harm than good, new research shows. 

Nabs has launched a Working Parents Initiative and white paper to share best practice. The charity's research has also found that six out of ten parents know of someone who has left their role because of pressures of being a working parent. This has risen three percentage points in the past two years.
