Officials of a human resources association have urged employers to study the behavior of millennials in order to prevent losses to their companies due to high attrition rate.
At the BizForum at Dermpath – SM City Davao yesterday, Rachel Guinan, public relations officer of the People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) – Davao Chapter, said millennials tend to leave their workplaces any time if they feel in conflict with the management.
Guinan added that since they are considered as the next industry leaders, employers should help them realize their potentials instead of imposing stringent rules.
“The millennials right now, they are very good. I work with millennials, I’m so used to it, they just need guidance,” Guinan said, adding that they have the the highest probability to get hired because of their creativity and “they work very fast,” but they tend to leave easily either because of conflict or for other opportunities.
Roland Suico, vice president of the association’s chapter, also cited “commitment” as something rare among millennials, making some employers hesitant to hire them.
“You know what’s the trick of dealing with millennials? Let them do what they want. They do not want someone to tell them what to do,” Guinan said, adding that employers need to challenge their skills in order to make them grow.
“Let them move forward because if you get them stuck in the same work assignment, they’ll get bored. Give them more work,” she added.
