The 10 Commandments of Attracting Millennials to Manufacturing

As Generation X ages out of the workforce, many organizations will find themselves with a gaping worker gap. And it's never too early to start to be the kind of company that attracts millennial workers.

Tailored Label Products, which makes engineered labels for a variety of industrial and electronics applications, developed the 10 Commandments of Attracting and Retaining Millennials. For the company, this has resulted in a robust multi-generational workforce — and growth.

“When we started the company, we wanted to focus on culture,” Tracy Tenpenny, vice president of sales and marketing for Tailored Label, told EBN. “We had a philosophy of wanting to be the best place to work, and as we went about putting those elements in place, we realized that they were really elements that millennials are attracted to and appreciative of.”

    “One of the biggest rules is to throw away some of the traditional workplace obstacles. Encourage employees to recruit friends and family. The organization gets great people, and millennials like the close integration of personal and work lives. In addition, offer employees the opportunity to have flexible schedules, and do what you can to promote work/life balance.”

    Hailey, I don't know far it's possible and practical. Competiveness, skill and knowledge are the cut offs for filtration. Working hour flexibility is common in all office but latest study shows that it hadn't contributed much in terms of employee efficiency or productivity.
