How to prepare your business for the millennial generation
By 2020, 50% of the global workforce will be millennials. Already, these digital natives are challenging conventional wisdom and redefining the way businesses think about their workforces. They want to be more productive by working remotely and having flexible hours, and they’re building the digital tools to make it possible.
So how can you prepare your business to make the most of the millennial generation? How will things change over the coming years and how can younger workers bring fresh perspectives and deliver business value?
Lauren Razavi and Jesse Onslow Norton, co-founders of Norwich-based communications consultancy Flibl, delivered a lunchtime event designed to guide our understanding and collaboration with tomorrow’s workforce.
After graduating from the prestigious creative writing MA at the University of East Anglia, Lauren made a name for herself as a freelance journalist, reporting from more than 30 countries for titles such as The Guardian, Wired, NPR and Harper’s Bazaar. In 2016, she was crowned the UK’s young freelancer of the year at the IPSE awards and named as a notable young leader by entrepreneurship group LeadNorfolk.
Jesse, a UEA graduate in politics and media, began his career in computer programming before Google headhunted him to work on a communications project spanning countries across the world. Since then, he’s worked on editorial and content for brands like Emirates, Royal Bank of Canada, NatWest and Regus. He also speaks regularly on topics such as fintech, blockchain and macroeconomics at conferences and events all over the globe.
In just 12 months, Flibl has expanded from a simple idea to a team of 10 people. Today, the consultancy helps some of the world’s most innovative companies tell their stories on digital platforms.
