  • Why Millennials make Great Interns and Future Employees


    Tessara Smith, PayScale

    Millennials often get a bad rap when it comes to our work ethic in comparison with the rest of the work force; we have been called selfish, entitled, lazy, and worst of all unmotivated. The fact of the matter is most of us haven’t had to work half as hard as the generation that came before us to get to our jumping off points as college graduates. However, many of us are up to our elbows in debt from student loans and our job perspectives upon graduation look grim. Perhaps you have hired underperforming workers from the millennial generation before, but don’t let a few bad apples ruin the bunch. I am here to set the record straight and tell you why hiring a Millennial will be a great choice for you as an employer.

It’s an interesting phenomenon that in a time when companies offer instant access to assistance, one-click ordering and nearly as many product and service options as a person could ever think of, we see service as declining. One could blame all of this instant access for the rush of overly demanding customers, but the view is a bit different from where we sit in our HR offices. There’s no denying that we as consumers expect more than ever for everything from intangible services to groceries but there’s more to this story and it lies in what companies are doing behind the scenes.

  • Want engaged employees? First create a culture of trust


    Crystal Spraggins, SPHR

    In Top Trust Myths: 1 of 2: Trust Takes Time, author Charles Green argues against the popular saying that “Trust takes a long time to build and only a few moments to be destroyed.” Green makes the point that sometimes we instantly trust, like at the physician’s office, (or I’d say the hair stylist—because is there any other reason we’d let a compete stranger take a pair of scissors to our head?), and he makes sense.
