In 2015, Saturday Night Live aired an episode with Miley Cyrus as the host and musical guest. The episode featured a skit that poked fun at millennials.
The audiences didn't know quite what to make of it. Some chuckled in approval while others called it a gross exaggeration. Whatever the opinion, the skit highlighted two important points: a) millennials are a coveted and important demographic, and b) they are tech savvy.
Surge in corporate training:In today's dynamic business world, industries across the board are making technological advances. In fact, many strategists believe that if a company does not have a 'learning attitude', it risks being left behind. Research also indicates that employee training is a worthwhile investment.
Training and development initiatives are an integral part of implementing the 'learning culture'. Training expenditures have increased by an average of 13% over the past few years, signifying a growing importance for training provided by companies. This increase also could be partly driven by the expectations of younger employees joining the organization.
A Price Waterhouse Coopers report shows that millennials share three distinct characteristics: they are ambitious, constantly learning, and want to progress rapidly. It is also estimated that by 2020, around 50% of the employed populace will consist of millennials.
That's why organizations must develop and deliver training that resonates with their millennial employees in order to sustain talent.
