Cultivating a Human Resources Department for Tech Savvy Millennials
Every human resources department is pulling its hair out trying to cultivate the right workplace for the newest crop of tech savvy millennials. These are the employees who will set your company ahead of the curve through applying new technology. However, these new employees definitely do not respond to traditional HR tactics or an old-school work environment.
Cultivating a Results-Oriented Workplace
Millennials have little use for seniority in a workspace. If older employees refuse to update their efficiency using newer technologies, millennials will revolt. Human resources must create a clear message: Performance gets rewarded above all, and there is plenty of room for inventive employees to make extra money.
Creating an Authentic Workspace
Millennials are more concerned with a company's authenticity than any previous generation of workers. Authenticity gets verified through sites like Glassdoor, so if you are lying about your company culture, this generation will find out and boycott you. Human resources should communicate how the company is interacting with and giving back to the community that houses it.
Cultivating New Tech
There is no use for a millennial to learn all of the new ways to increase efficiency if you set your company procedures in stone. Millennials, as a rule, will avoid this kind of company. Human resources must help the company cultivate the reputation for new innovations. Let your new employees use their training!
Leaving the Useless Stuff Alone
Staying in line with a completely results-oriented culture means putting less pressure on employees to dress a certain way or keep rigid office hours. Companies such as Google, Apple and Facebook continue to increase efficiency party because of the autonomy they give employees in these areas.

One way to get a lot of pressure off you as an entrepreneur is to delegate work. But in order to delegate, you have to trust your employees. This doesn't just mean trusting them with money or trusting them to be honest. It also means trusting them to do the job right.
It might seem like a cliché to say that you have to change with the times but it is nonetheless true. Many organizations are set up in a certain way and continue to function in that way 10 or even 20 years later. But the fact is that the things that people valued 10 or 20 years ago are different from the things that people value now.
There are certain jobs that lend themselves very easily to job burnout. For example, if you're a social worker or a customer service representative working night shifts, chances are you're experiencing fatigue, depression and a general sense of unease most of the time.
