Great expectations: Meeting the Demands of a New Wave of Workers (Millennials)

Radiocasts | April 14, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Digital natives.

Today’s workforce is rapidly absorbing a new generation of workers raised with personal computers, smartphones and the Internet. Not always comfortable working 9-5 or filling a single org-chart box, these digital natives have a different expectation of work and what technology fundamentally is, compared to previous demographic cohorts.

What do they really want? Perhaps more important, how will they shape your organizational topology and technology landscape for the future?

The experts speak.

Steven Dubis, Amazon: “This new wave of people coming through office doors near you are not just tech literate … what they’re not used to are constraints and being restricted by an IT department….” (Alastair Mitchel, Wired)

Kinh Demaree, Axiom Zen: “Don’t worry, be hapa.” (T-shirt in Hawai’i. Hapa is Hawaiian for mixed ethnicity)

Chris Mark, SAP: “Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.” (David Frost)
