MANILA – Companies need to train millennials for leadership roles as the young workforce moves to mid-level positions, a global recruitment agency said Monday.

Head-hunters also need to adjust to the young population, as their work experiences differ from their predecessor, Robert Walters manager for Banking and Financial Services Priya Gupta told ANC.

Millennials, for example, have shorter job tenures compared to older generations, she said.

“Millennials now are going to mid-level function. A number of things now are geared to the millennials and rightfully so, we need to attract them. Now it’s about how we train them to take those leadership,” Gupta said.

“The reality is about analyzing it in a different way today so that we can offer them different opportunities,” she added. 

Using their language and offering them new roles can help firms lure millennials, Gupta said.

The overseas Filipino trend is also “shifting” as more millennials decide work in the Philippines due to more competitive salaries and better opportunities, Gupta said.
