That entrepreneurial spirit is paying off, judging from recent comments from 3Cinteractive’s Millennial workers. “I joined 3C because of its exciting and progressive environment with a strong, positive culture,” said one employee. Another added, “I was attracted to the family-focused environment and opportunity to do exciting work for some great clients.” For today’s young professionals, a sense of corporate purpose, financial security, and a healthy internal culture are powerful motivators, according to Daniel Cane, CEO, Modernizing Medicine. “Millennials feel they can work anywhere they choose,” he said. “They are attracted to companies that serve a larger purpose and have a culture of caring. In other words, they want an employer who is doing well by doing good.” Within the workplace, Millennials like open layouts, collaborative spaces, a lounge for “downtime” and a creative approach to artwork, furnishings and accessories. “The open concept significantly energizes the dynamic of the entire office,” said Keith Spina, CEO, GliddenSpina + Partners. “It not only fosters collaboration and improves communication, it elevates the team atmosphere and for us that is a win.” 32 PALM BEACH COUNTY BUSINESS PROFILE | BDB.ORG
I believe that creating competencies is one of the keys to a happy and engaged workforce. — John Duffy, CEO, 3Cinteractive Today’s professionals also appreciate a flexible work environment in an urban location, according to Rick Gonzalez, president, REG Architects in West Palm Beach. “Millennials want to be in downtown areas with a sense of character,” he said. “They want to be able to walk to shops, restaurants and outdoor events. They also enjoy beaches, parks and other natural settings. With all that Palm Beach County has to offer, I think we are well positioned to attract Millennials in the next few years.”
