Millennials in the Workplace: Exploring Managerial Perceptions in Multi-Generational Organizations

Millennials in the Workplace: Exploring Managerial Perceptions in Multi-Generational Organizations

The growth and influence of millennials in the workplace have generated questions from managers on how to best respond to this generational group and their contributions to the multi-generational work environment. There are currently four generations engaged and collaborating in the workforce (Kapoor & Soloman, 2011; Knouse, 2011; PriceWaterhouseCoopers, 2011), and whose influences create new challenges for employers to lead effectively (Cahill & Sedrak, 2012; Kapoor & Soloman, 2011; PriceWaterhouseCoopers, 2011). In particular, managers are compelled to learn how to identify and harvest the skills, talents, and assets of the millennial generation to build the organizational culture as this group is one of the largest currently in the workforce. This research explores managers’ perceptions related to the emerging needs, roles, responsibilities, and commitments of millennials in the multi-generational workplace, and to determine how managers may effectively recognize and use millennial contributions to enhance the organizational culture.
