The Importance of Recognition: Millennial Edition

Shedding Light on Millennial Employee Recognition

It seems that every time a discussion about work-ethic, achievements, and accolades is brought up, it always ends with a chastising remark geared towards the millennial generation. There is no generation, maybe besides the Baby Boomers, who are analyzed quite like how millennials are. As leaders in the New Jersey and Pennsylvania sports trophy business, we understand just how crazy things can seem to be with millennials and their participation trophies; but we want to take some time to shed light on the importance of recognizing millennial employees in your company.

Explain the “why” behind a project

While not singular to millennials yet very prevalent in their generation, millennials crave the sentiment of showing up to work for a purpose and role that aligns with their values and extends past the paycheck. It’s unlikely that a millennial will work on a project or assignment that they do not fully understand the “why” behind. It’s best for managers at companies who hire millennial workers to explain the rationale behind the importance of the project for extra fuel to get the job done.
