What to avoid when dealing with millennials

What to avoid when dealing with millennials

What can be the basic mistakes when company dealing with generation Y? Let`s take a closer look. 


1. Not offering enough opportunities in the workplaces

Millennials are very driven. They need to know how deep they can dig. Give them space to discover more and make them see that there is so much to offer by the company. Held as many trainings as possible, such as leadership training, self-improvement training, etc. Make the millennial believe that the companies offer such unlimited yet well-elaborated content they can discover in order for them to give themselves opportunities to improve and develop themselves.


2. Unclear explanation of the training’s purpose

Millennials are very concern about their career development and have such huge need to know about things in details. Make sure to make them see how the training being given by your company is applicable to long-term career growth.


3. Failure to coach

When it comes to millennials, everything is about engagement, not just entitlement. Set up a great coaching relationship can help them evaluate their progress. Make them learn much in the progress itself rather than too focusing on the outcomes. Also, provide enough feedback as you coach them, because millennial really need to know if they are doing a great job.




4. Leaving the technology behind

This is the most crucial one. One of the greatest strength of the millennial is their sound knowledge of technology. In fact, 70% have “friended” their managers and/or co-workers on Facebook. Therefore, the millennials have zero tolerance for outdated system. They are very interested in connecting with others through what-so-called nowadays as social media. Welcoming the technology and keep up with it is the best way to engage with the millennial.

As long as your company is not doing any of those 4 potential mistakes, then at least your company is on the right track in starting the new engagement strategy to welcome your millennial.

November is a month of actions towards Sustainable Development Goals


November is a month of actions towards Sustainable Development Goals

 Exactly one year ago, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals. During this time the initiative Youth4GlobalGoals become one of most powerful movements towards the SDGs. The reach has crossed more than 120 countries and territories around the world.

According to the YouthSpeak Survey results, only 46% of young people know about the SDGs. However, they are the ones who will experience the consequences of implementation of the Goals the most. The level of engagement of young people in the Agenda today will directly result in the state of the world in 2030.

While majority (68%) believes the society will be in better state in 2030, young people still ask the question about who is responsible for implementing the SDGs. In reality, youth still relies on the public sector while it’s partnership between public, private sectors and civil society that will be a key to success this time.

Youth 4 Global Goals campaign was created to mobilise young people to take action towards the SDGs. It has a set of initiatives aimed to make people aware about the Global Goals, understand them and act.


What exactly we are doing to support Sustainable Development Goals?youth_speak_forum_logo

  • Youth Speak Survey: the survey got 7,400 responses from Indonesia Millenials. The result is the voice of Indonesian Youth is giving an opinion about what SDGs they would act upon, what kind of motives and fears they have.
  • Youth Speak Summits:  those events are realized around Indonesia and bring together young and senior leaders to form a space for inspiring conversations and creation of actionable ideas around global issues. We are focusing on global goals 1,4 and 3 (No poverty, Health and Well-being and Quality Education).
  • Youth Speak Projectsconsidering the insights got in the Survey, AIESEC is running the social projects around SDGs, Millennials and region needs. This is how a young person gets an opportunity to directly contribute to an issue he or she relates the most to, while developing the leadership potential. This year, we are going to have grand finale in Jakarta (Youth Speak Forum) where investor and experts are going to choose best project from all four summits in November and support it financially and by coaching as well.

Looking forward to see you in the Summits or Forum.

AIESEC and UNDP – partnership to make a difference


AIESEC and UNDP – partnership to make a difference

As young people, we have the incredible opportunity to shape the future and influence a world we want to live in. To get there, we must understand what’s already happening that will shape our future. 2015 was a year when the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) were adopted by the United Nations and governments of the world set of commitments that will define the next 15 years of global development.

“AIESEC is largest Youth organization in Indonesia, and one of the thing that Youth can contribute are ideas. We face a lot of challenges in these days, we need innovations, we need technology and creative ideas. Engaging with young people can help to identify new solutions for current problems like hunger, poverty or quality education, thats why we are excited about cooperation with AIESEC Indonesia,” with these words launched Francine Pickup, Deputy Country Director for UNDP, cooperation with AIESEC in October 2016.


We are realizing that unless we take it in our hands nothing will change. It is on us to push leaders across governments to businesses to include young people in the decision-making process and to participate in creating a society that meets the needs of young people in Indonesia— millions of us.

AIESEC Indonesia with network of more than 2000 members, is able to achieve big things, create  projects which influence thousands people, but we are not able to make it alone, thats why we are  striving for purposeful partnerships as this one with UNDP.
