Since 2018, Randall Blum has led his consulting firm as president and CEO. Operating in Dallas, Texas, he focuses his work on millennial employees. Randall Blum helps Fortune 500 corporations improve millennial productivity and satisfaction and promote millennial professional development.
Professional development motivates millennials because people from this generational group desire a purposeful work experience. They are not interested in the daily grind that their parents once did. Rather, they want to contribute to an organization in a meaningful way. This means they want jobs that are relevant to the success of the community.
Creating a meaningful work environment is challenging since each person has their own definition of “meaningful.” For this reason, the first step of adding meaning to work is making assessments that determine who employees are and what interests they have. With such surveys in hand, companies have more guidance as they implement new operations, programs, and initiatives that create more meaning in the workplace.
Companies can also find that tweaking job descriptions, so they relate to these assessments is also effective. Small changes in different roles can bring about a huge amount of meaning to each person since it lets them use different skills.
