MILLENNIAL PREFERENCES ABOUT WHAT WORKPLACES SHOULD BE
Millennials have so much workplace concern and surveys have shown that they have a very strong interest particularly in the field of healthcare. It’s already anticipated that in years to come their numbers will make up a majority of the workforce continuing to multiply and multiply.
According to Pew Research Center, as of 2015, there were 75.4 million millennials, compared to 74.9 million Baby Boomers.
Since nurses is the backbone of the industry having a direct influence on patient care, it seems attractive for most millennials.
And in today’s generation of employees such as these millennials, they have much issues in terms how a workplace should run.
A 2016 Deloitte millennial survey found that millennials’ top workplace issues include:
- Putting employees first (though in healthcare, that would necessarily come after the patients)
- A solid foundation of trust and integrity
- Excellence in customer care
- High-quality, reliable services
- Social responsibility
While a millennial survey by the Business and Professional Women’s Foundation found workplace preferences such as:
- A multicultural environment
- Utilization of cutting-edge technology
- Making a difference in the world and in the community
Erudite Nursing Institute™ calls nurse administrators to apply these concerns to empower not just millennials but the entire workforce regardless of age and experience. The institute believes that inhabiting these principles in the workplace pushes nursing professionals to strive and persevere in their service catering more aspirants to enter the healthcare industry.
