A recent study by Ricoh, A new perspective: Ricoh Document Governance Index, found that employees born after 1990 often have a unique perspective on work. What this generation crave most is a formal structure to work in, in which tasks are reviewed so they can make progress.

Unlike older generations of 36-47, the under 25-age group identified home working as being less important than structured management. How should this affect the way you manage your business? Younger staff may want senior involvement in their working lives and more certainty than seasoned employees.

Under 25 workers were asked about the simplest way they felt senior managers could improve business processes with 24% responding saying that more regular reviews of their work, compared to just 7% of an older generation of 48-55.

Overall, to engage younger employees and improve your business processes, ensure that a formal structure and regular reviews exist within which they feel they can grow and develop.
