Sue Shellenbarger, columnist for the WSJ, says that “the waning of the boomers with their uptight ways (really?) and the rise of the we’want’it’all millennials, are spurring major shifts in employer programs.”
She says that important issues for younger workers include:
- Wide – open flexibility
- Broader programs including paid paternity leave
- Enviro-perks including fitness centers and cafes
- Vacation time
Although you might not be able to provide wide – open flexibility on the job site, you can include in your benefit packages discounted gym memberships, bonuses for people who actually go to the gym and even bi-weekly pot-luck breakfast before staff meetings.
