Millennials is the term used to describe the generation born near the dawn of the 21st century between the late 1980s and the early 2000s. They are also known as Generation Y, because they follow on from Generation X (born 1965-1979).

Millennials are a generation marked by tech-savviness, creativity, and flexibility. They look for jobs through unconventional social media connections, and are driven by a strong sense of both local and global community. They are also much more focused on work-life balance and corporate philanthropy than previous generations.

While these qualities can be considered strong assets for a company, Generation X recruiters in Japan who are unfamiliar with Millennials sometimes feel uncomfortable about the new generation not following traditional job patterns; what appears to be a lack of company loyalty; frequent job-hopping, and a seemingly increased sense of entitlement. 

To hire and retain the Millennial who has the core competencies and values that fit the job, organisations and managers can benefit from changing their mindset and adapting their recruitment and engagement practices. They also need to consider what strong Millennial candidates look for in an employer and what their company has to offer. 

There are many ways to draw in and retain young talent and it doesn't have to involve a snazzy office with beanbags, coffee corners, and free iPads. Small changes can have a large impact: flexible working practices; highlighting the prevalence of technology in the business; strengthening the company culture to cultivate cooperation in new and different ways; emphasising connectedness and communication; and innovative employee education and development programs. 

Join us to hear David Swan, Managing Director of Robert Walters Japan & Korea, talk about what your organisation can do to attract top talent, retain it, and engage Generation Y to produce their full potential on the job.

About the speaker:

Born in Sydney, Australia in 1971. David holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Accounting from the University of Canberra, and qualified as an Australian CPA. Before joining Robert Walters, he spent several successful years working in the areas of public accounting and finance. Moving to Japan in 1994, he has made Japan his home for over 20 years. He also enjoys playing bass guitar and performs live music with his friends in Tokyo.
