Since Millennials make up the majority of the American workforce, it’s important to understand how to successfully manage this group from a distance. The Millennial generation craves working in a collaborative environment , which can be challenging when employees are remote. Remote companies should rely heavily on video chats to make Millennials feel as if they are still logging meaningful, productive time with other employees.
- If a company is just switching to remote work, it may be hard for a manager to let go of the control of knowing that every employee is where they should be.
- In a remote work environment, it is even more of a priority to keep Millennials personally and professionally invested with the company.
- Anything from a quick email to say thanks or a shout-out on the next conference call will light a fire under your Millennial employees.
