Did you read the brilliant post from Noel? Absolutely spot on! Now here is the real news. Gen Y expects you to constantly train them with personal development ideas and move them to the next level. If you don’t do it, they will leave you and find someone else that will! Or if they don’t leave, they will become a difficult person and create a chain reaction of low morale.
So if you already know that, why wouldn’t build loyalty by helping them build a resume that will help them succeed! The downside is if you don’t have a “next step” for them, they will take their marbles to the next game. The upside is the building of trust and loyalty.
Do you have any new ideas for recognition? Marsha
