Millennials Want Training They Can Use
Millennials are very pragmatic. They want to work on things that matter. If you want to irritate a Millennial, just show them some training slides that are all theory and hard to apply to their jobs. You’ll hear comments like, “This doesn’t help me.” In a reality, they are correct.
Create training that introduces them to skills they can use in order to advance right away. Giving them a hands-on experience to skills they can use to ‘make things better’ is critical for this hands-on generation.
Make sure your training content introduces skills that are easy for them to apply to their jobs.
Millennials Also Want To Get Their Hands Dirty
Giving this hands-on generation the capability to try, learn, and apply your training content is golden. This generation lives by the ‘let’s try’ and don’t fear failure like previous generations.
Creating a contemporary learning environment where they can touch, play, and apply your training content will produce far greater engagement. Challenging training participants to apply your training content and see tangible business results from decisions is critical. This creates training that is tangible, applicable, challenging and engaging.
Make sure your training offers the ability to try it out.
