The youngest generation often gets somewhat of a bad rep from their older and wiser counterparts. This pattern can be seen if you scroll back through a history textbook and continues in today’s world with millennials.
Things change over time. Change can be both good and bad. It can also be hard to adapt. With each new generation entering the workforce, change is inevitable. One major difference between the older generation of employees and millennials is the way in which communication takes place. I commonly notice that my generation tends to lean towards text-based methods of communication (e.g., text-messaging and email) whereas older generations lean towards face-to-face or telephonic methods.
2. Telephone/Voicemail: This is a great option and the same rules generally apply to this as they do to #1. Whenever placing an important phone call or voicemail, state a message with detail and don’t forget to include your name and number.
4. Text-messaging: This should be your last option when conducting business. Only use this method if you have a good relationship with the other party and you know they won’t be annoyed by it. Be aware of the time you are sending the message and the clarity of your message. Stay away from emojis and acronyms.
