BIDDING WITH THE MILLENNIAL GENERATION


Combine the Millennial generation’s considerable helpings of both motivation and trepidation for bidding with the right guidance and their opportunities for succeeding are endless.

It is a precious privilege to be someone’s first employer: wise heads can teach the newcomer many aspects of bidding. Although enthusiasm, willingness to learn and strong IT skills are a must, the employer must nurture the recruit in a supportive environment with permission to get things wrong whilst ensuring employers/clients receive high quality work.

The driving force to win usually suggests a need for experience over youth. By striking the right balance of success and investment in the next generation, however, the outcome is a young, loyal workforce used to winning.

Takeaway:

  • How to attract millennials as your recruits
  • Understand their support needs
  • See why it’s worth investing!
