If you’ll make a graph, they’ll take up more than 50% of the nursing supply.
Gen Y is different than the preceding baby boomers or Gen X because their outlook and goals are through a different lens. More than ever, the Gen Ys will love to indulge in meaningful challenges as they will seek purpose and fulfillment. At White Glove Community Care, we are here to navigate the multigenerational workforce to keep a positive climate for everyone.
Millennials need purpose to go on. They must feel that their job is not just another job. In that aspect, we can certainly say, White Glove helps them attain those goals because working in a homecare setting is naturally rewarding by experiencing the satisfaction of giving. When you see your patient making progress, you know you spent your day well.
According to CareerBuilder, Gen Z’s (age 6-24) average length of time spent at a job is 2 years and 3 months. For millennials (25-40) that figure is 2 years and 9 months, while Gen Xers (41-56) were at a job for an average of 5 years and 2 months, and baby boomers (57-75) spent 8 years and 3 months at a job.
Yet, those are not the White Glove Community Care numbers we know. After a detailed data review, we observed that our Gen Z nurses will hold onto their jobs for an average of 3 years and 2 months. For millennials that makes it 4 years and 3 months, while Gen Xers are likely to last for 6 years, and baby boomers do not have any changes in mind other than potential retirement.
Clarity and convenience also play a role in the life of Gen Y nurses. They want to know their expectations to ensure their success. We are determined to provide the proper guidance for every nurse, by having unparalleled available support 24 hours a day, every day. Our documentation systems are navigable and easy, to create an environment where everyone can thrive.
White Glove encourages its employees to share ideas for change because we value every individual employee, and we want to make it a better workplace. A survey conducted by Virtuali and Work Place Trends, 91% of respondents expressed a desire to lead. Millennials have great ideas, and they want management to be open to hear them. And we want to hear you. Your sentiment is important because you are a key member in our organization.
The hottest button for people in Gen Y is to find an inclusive employer. Everyone deserves equal opportunity regardless of race, color, age, religion, gender, or other outer distinctions. Moshe Stareshefsky, Chief Executive Officer at White Glove Community Care stresses. “At White Glove we believe that equality in the workplace is more profound than any non-discrimination policy. We appreciate the strength that diversity brings to our organization, and we offer compensation and promotions by virtue of talent and contribution.”
Millennials feel that more than just the dollar amount they are being paid, it is important for them to work for an employer who shares the company profits with their employees. We keep our profit margins substantially lower than the industry average, aligning with the White Glove philosophy that those responsible for the White Glove successes should enjoy a winning pay and fabulous benefits package.
Bottom line, whether you are in Gen Z, Y, X or Baby Boomer – we are here to help you reach your goals in an environment where you can just be you. Still, it meant a lot when Great Place to Work named White Glove Community Care a Best Employer for Millennials. What they say about us is so true, and once again they base it on what our caregivers and employees say, so the feedback is real. Click to join us now.
