Can Millennials change companies. For Good?
As the competitive landscape continues to transform, the business world must change the way they think about their business model, services and products. Sustainable innovation is essential for maintaining a competitive edge and critical for companies to respectively engage with their employees, society and their clients. By emphasizing the importance of sustainability within a business, companies strengthen their relationship with stakeholders and develop competencies that competitors would be hard-pressed to match.
Moreover, organizations that foster innovative thinking and intrapreneurship have a greater appeal to millennials. Generation Y is in a position to bring major changes to the business world as its values, aspirations and goals vary significantly compared to previous generations. Engaging with millennials and encouraging their groundbreaking initiatives and ideas can be of great value for a company’s sustainability and its future.
