Many executives have chalked off the latest generation as a lazy employees or even good for nothing labor and of no value to their modern corporations. However some very smart retailing companies are finding that is not the case of all. In fact, this latest generation is one of the high energy and tremendous social skills, which lend them well to retail sales.
Of course, this latest generation is still in high school and college and they're not available yet as full-time employees and some retailers do not want them as full-time employees anyways. This is why a retail operator needs to learn strategies that allow these kids to work part time.
Many retailers are also finding out that these part time workers also save them a tremendous amount of money in Health Care Insurance. This is because most of these kids are either living at home or going to school (college) and they are not interested in Health Care Insurance, but they are interested in learning about business and industry and putting in some money in their pockets to afford the new techno toys and gasoline to put in their cars.
A Bureau of Labor and Statistics noted that in 2008 there are 30 million kids between the ages of 16 and 25; This is an incredible labor source to be taped into. Indeed, there are a few problems with the Millennials', for instance, many of them do not show up and time or sometimes not all and this makes scheduling very difficult.
However, when they are on the job they work extremely well and do very well in retail sales. Amazingly enough many corporations are getting much better at dealing with these issues, although you can see why many of the older generation are not very impressed with this age group. Please consider this.
