Companies Today are Failing at This in a Big Way

three-unhappy-busi-people-Bill-JensenHow will the relationship between employees and companies change in the near future?

This question was explored in an episode of ExecuNet Master Class by Bill Jensen. Harvard Business Review, CNBC and Fast Company have called him today’s foremost expert on work complexity. Bill has spent the past 25 years studying how work gets done and much of what he has found horrifies him. He’s an internationally-acclaimed thought leader who is known for extremely useful content and his passion for making it easier for everyone to work smarter, not harder.

Bill said in this Master Class that workforce newbies will drive major changes in our relationship with companies, and the Millennials are going to drive significant change in what work looks like in the near future.

    What this entails is changing the strategic business goals and business model. All enterprises communicate a business plan to its senior leaders and expect execution to plan. Incentives are based on delivery to plan goals. The concept of change to an employee centric business agenda whilst meeting corporate business plan may not be realized in years to come till perhaps millennials become in charge of corporations.

    Any thoughts on managing multiple generations needs with a focus being the millennials needs.
