Environment to thrive

MILLENNIAL managers or those born in the mid 1980s are not able to perform as well as senior staff from previous generations if they are not provided the right kind of support, says FMF managing director Ram Bajekal.

While addressing more than 200 human resource officials in Nadi yesterday, he said there was a need to create an environment that allowed millennials to thrive.

"Why is it important to build a workplace that is important to millennial managers because it has been proven that about 89 per cent of millennial managers really are not able to perform at the same level as previous generations," he said.

"Research says that while these millennial managers move up they tend to perform less.

"Even compared to their frontline counterparts, the millennial managers perform at a lower level."

He said millenials felt entitled and they wanted to make an impact in their roles.
