Continual engagement is so important. Companies need to actively recognize potential, particularly in employees who are good communicators and possess high emotional IQs. They should demonstrate trust by involving promising Millennials in new learning opportunities and interesting projects. Work/like balance needs to be actively encouraged, as Millennials have grown up in an “always-on” world, and career-path progress needs to be recognized.
