    Confidential to a Certain Deloitte CEO: Millennials Don’t Need Any More Emails

    • “Two-thirds of Millennials express a desire to leave their organizations by 2020. Businesses must adjust how they nurture loyalty among Millennials or risk losing a large percentage of their workforces.”

      doesn’t loyalty normally beget loyalty?

      I’ve been in many organizations who regularly smear employees against the wall like a bored zoo gorilla. deplorable working conditions, insulting pay, stripped benefits, unrealistic goals, and zero real upwards or sideways mobility. yet they throw their collective hands in the air and have full-on existential crises when eoy/holiday pittance is paid out?

      “While many Millennials have already attained senior positions, much remains to be done. More than six in ten Millennials (63 percent) say their “leadership skills are not being fully developed.” […] Last year we observed that “regardless of gender or geography, only 28 percent of Millennials feel that their current organizations are making ‘full use’ of the skills they currently have to offer.””

      No shit. Firms can either allow employees greater latitude and breadth of input and responsibility, or they can simply hire more effective Drones, pay them less, and hope they don’t self-actualize any time soon.

        Loyalty isn’t rewarded. If you’re loyal to the firm, you’ll be paid less than the lateral hire who has shown they’re not a “loyal” person.

        “doesn’t loyalty normally beget loyalty?”

        Not in the business world, unless you can connect on a personal level. At least that’s what I’ve seen.

          I agree with this. Loyalty to companies is dead, loyalty to professional colleagues (regardless of where they end up) is alive and well.
