When managing millennial industrial workers, Manufacturing journalist TR Cutler found that delivering negative feedback in meetings is a bad idea. Millennial industrial workers are more sensitive to ‘shaming’ management tactics than older workers. When younger employees make mistakes, it would behoove employers to discuss the issue in a private meeting rather than in a public environment. For these young people who grew up with hyper-involved parents and gentler discipline methods, public criticism and humiliation will be destructive and undesirable.
Cutler sees the need to manage millennial workers differently than older workers. Cutler suggested, “Workplaces need to change if they want to retain millennial talent in the industrial sector and this includes a communication style establishing a more transparent workplace.”
