Executives 'should provide training and support to keep millennial employees happy'
Interim executives looking to get the most out of millennial workers should focus on training and support, according to new research.
Research carried out by City & Guilds has highlighted these factors as two of its seven ways to ensure this demographic is happy at work.
After surveying more than 1,000 millennials, it found 78 per cent would like to further develop their career through training at work.
City & Guilds also revealed 34 per cent of people in this demographic feel they are behind where they should be in their career and it believes this could affect their confidence.
The organisation has called on employers to ensure they support millennials' ambitions and provide opportunities for progression to combat this.
Other factors included in City & Guilds top seven are providing benefit schemes and fostering good relationships between employees.
Millennial workers are set to account for a growing portion of the workforce and attracting and retaining this demographic is likely to be key in the war for talent.
