eCoaching for Millennials should work well

This article from Work Force Insider shows what trends are emerging in the wants and needs of Millennials who are becoming the largest part of the current working population. Any companies wishing to succeed through staff engagement (all of the successful ones!) need to take notice.

Millennials want balance and options to telecommute for example. They also want to be developed so coaching and mentoring beat management dictating policy. So the clear match here is for companies to offer remote coaching or eCoaching to more of it's workforce than has traditionally been the case.

My only misgiving about the article is that the things listed as Millennial "wants" I am sure that other groups want too. Maybe Millennials are less likely to tolerate poor treatment from employers and simply demand a better work life balance.
