Millennials, Movement, and Meaningful Work

How do you lead a workforce that attracts young professionals who have many, different types of professional passions and goals?

The younger generation values experience above other aspirations. Where the signature of the Greatest Generation was institutional fidelity, Millennials and those in Gen Z are interested in pursuing a range of different experiences throughout their lifetime.

Over the last several years, this country saw a greater turnover of the workforce than any other time in its history. With an overabundance of online content at their fingertips, young professionals have the ability and interest to learn new skills quickly, moving through different subject matters with ease. If you’re an entrepreneur or an innovator, perhaps you can relate to the Millennial fascination with the new and the next.

What does it look like to harness the desire to pursue new ideas and interests rather than stifle it? At OneHope, the leadership fosters flexibility with our team, seeking to cultivate and encourage passions. That often means allowing young leaders to transition to a new job on a different team. Personally, I would rather a promising leader make multiple moves within our OneHope family than to move outside of it.

The search for meaningful work and valuable experiences is a trend that isn’t going away. How do you empower your employees to grow? How can the culture of your organization encourage the passions of its employees?

  1. Thanks, Sir. I believe every Christian Organization should not lose sight of the importance of people of character. “…. Evil communication corrupt good manners ” Professor Steve Corvey said in his book ” The seven habits of highly effective people” that we can be effective with things but not so with people
    . For example, we can easily set a deadline to get things done but we can’t set time to change a person.
    We know that finding the right person(s) to work with does not come easily but it is worth the effort. The Bible shows that David the King of Israel looked out for and selected the right people across the nation to work with. It helps to reduce so much headaches, I guess.
    More blessings, Sir.
