Cushman & Wakefield – Facing the Millennial Wave

December 18, 2014

Cushman & Wakefield’s Global Business Consulting group is proud to announce the release of a report about the workplace preferences of Millennial employees entitled, “Facing the Millennial Wave.” 

Despite the criticality of Millennials to every company’s labor strategy, evidence indicates most still don’t know what it takes to attract and engage this generation. If companies are to succeed as a Millennial employer of choice, they need to base their employee value proposition on a few fundamental Millennial truths.The report includes advice for employers and managers, including:

  • Winning the war for talent comes down to thinking about workplace strategy as a brand or product manager rather than a real estate or facility professional
  • Design space with employee competition, constant learning and brand identification in mind
  • Chose a work location that maximizes access to the urban-centric talent pool
  • Think about a city’s lifestyle, public transit, mix of uses and diversity along with traditional location criteria
