Want to attract millennials? Get new tech

It's no secret that millennials are passionate about technology. For members of this generation, devices such as laptops and smartphones are essential at home and in the office. In fact, a good number of these electronics-obsessed professionals consider this unique fixation when evaluating potential employers, according to data from Deloitte.

Consequently, many organizations make it a point to adopt new enterprise technology to increase their appeal among millennials. If you're looking to fill key positions with strident young leaders, you might consider doing the same. Here are some up-and-coming technologies to consider:

Collaborative tools
These days, internal collaboration is essential in the workplace, as businesses must remain nimble and act fast to keep up with competitors. There are a variety of digital tools on the market that facilitate this sort of approach, including the trendy application Slack, which includes team-based chat and file-sharing features, according to ZDNet.

The software company allows small organizations to test its solution free of charge. Of course, if you're one of the millions of enterprises using the Microsoft ecosystem, you can adopt its equivalent Microsoft Teams.

"A good number of millennials factor in enterprise technology when evaluating potential employers."

The cloud
The worldwide cloud services market is expected to grow by more than 17 percent this year, Gartner discovered. Why? Businesses in every sector are flocking to the cloud, trading in on-premises servers for scalable, cost-effective cloud deployments.

However, this doesn't mean you have to make the swap tomorrow. You can go for a hybrid arrangement which will allow you to transition gradually, without throwing away capital investments.

Once you fill your office with new technology, you're going to need some qualified candidates. A retained executive search firm like YES Partners can help. Our highly-trained executive search consultants can connect you with millennial leaders with vision and true executive experience.
