Talent Management of Millennials

In this research, we consider a framework of talent management practices for organisations, which could be applied to all employees (in line with the inclusive approach to talent management) and/or to key star employees or key organisational positions (in line with the exclusive approach to talent management), depending on the respective organisation’s talent focus. The framework is developed from a research study exploring organisational and employee expectations and experiences, particularly tailored at engaging and motivating young (Generation Y/Millennials), early career professionals. We find that this generation has different expectations from the employment relationship, which organisations need to be cognisant of when resourcing, developing and retaining members in this generation. The MOTIVATE framework suggests eight overlapping concerns of Millennials and the strategies required to fortify the psychological contract between organisations and professional employees, and ultimately to lead to improved employee engagement, performance and retention.
We are presenting a paper on this research at the 3rd Workshop on Talent Management which takes place in ESCP Europe, Berlin, Germany on 13th and 14th October 2014 - http://www.eiasm.org/frontoffice/event_announcement.asp?event_id=1032.
