Millennial Employees Crave Recognition, Employer Reward Programs Miss the Mark


New employee research from Blackhawk Engagement Solutions reveals that current employee rewards and recognition programs—a key component in growing employee happiness—are not aligned with what makes Millennial employees happy and more productive. “Millennials are accustomed to attention and praise from their earliest days, and expect regular affirmation in the workplace. They are also prepared to switch jobs earlier and more frequently than previous generations, so employers need to take particular steps to maintain Millennial engagement,” said Rodney Mason, GVP of Marketing with Blackhawk Engagement Solutions, an international incentives and engagement company. “All-expense-paid trips and tickets to sporting events have little appeal for Millennials. Instead, they want more immediate and consistent recognition for their professional contributions and love the immediate gratification of prepaid card rewards.”

Millennials Outnumber Baby Boomers and Are Far More Diverse


Millennials, or America’s youth born between 1982 and 2000, now number 83.1 million and represent more than one quarter of the nation’s population. Their size exceeds that of the 75.4 million baby boomers, according to new U.S. Census Bureau estimates released today. Overall, millennials are more diverse than the generations that preceded them, with 44.2 percent being part of a minority race or ethnic group (that is, a group other than non-Hispanic, single-race white). These latest population estimates examine changes among groups by age, sex, race and Hispanic origin nationally, as well as in all states and counties, between April 1, 2010, and July 1, 2014.

MSHA Calls For Stepped Up Enforcement After Accidents Claim 3 Miners’ Lives


Deadly 24-hour period prompts closer scrutiny of mining deaths. In the wake of a deadly day in mining in which three miners lost their lives in separate incidents in Nevada, North Dakota and Virginia on Aug. 3, the Mine Safety and Health Administration is stepping up enforcement efforts and intensifying outreach and education nationwide.

Main expressed his concern over the alarming number of recent deaths. “In the past month alone, there have been five fatalities in the metal and nonmetal industry.

Retail Workers Tavorro Career Blog

Although Randstad’s U.S. Employee Confidence Index (ECI) decreased slightly from 62.3 points in the first quarter of 2015 to 61.9 (-0.4) in the second quarter, survey findings indicate employee confidence remains exceptionally high, with 2015 marking the first year the U.S. ECI has reached 60.0 points or higher since the survey’s inception in 2004.

Despite the minor second-quarter decline, nearly one-third of workers (32 percent) believe more jobs are available and more than half (53 percent) indicate they are confident in their ability to find a new job.
