Not only in Timișoara, but all over Romania, most tech companies are considering that developing their own products and services is the direction to follow in order to increase their chances of success in the global competition.

Reaching Out To Millennial Programmers

How well do you know your employees groups? AIMS helps you improve here, at least when it comes to your own Millennials!

Also called generation Y, Millennials are the demographic cohort with birth years ranging from 1980 to 2000. As of this year, 2015, statistics show that Millennials surpass Generation Xers as the largest generation in the workforce, especially in the IT and tech sector, where almost all employees are below 40 years of age.

What sets Gen Yers apart from their predecessors is their ability to see the grand scheme of things and to be able to change their environment for the better. They are also more detached from politics and have a tendency to not respect authority.

millenialsEven if the Millennial Generation is compared to Gen X a lot more connected and collaborative, they are also more competitive, both in sports and in the work environment. These kind of seeming paradoxes make teams constituting of Millennials or where Millennials are predominant to be quite difficult to handle, from a managerial stand point. That is why a deeper understanding of how Millennials think and of what they desire, both from themselves and from others, is crucial in running a successful business in today’s tech ecosystem.

AIMS, the innovative, well renown Timisoara based HR research company, launches an assessment on the traits of Millennial employees in Romania trying to gauge the way they want their needs and aspirations to be suited by the professional sphere.

Banat IT is partnering with AIMS encouraging Timisoara tech companies to enroll in the study, get insights on their own and the general Romanian Millennial population. If you are a company or a startup wishing to better understand the important factor for business success that is the working force, contributing to the AIMS research is a must.

In order to receive the link to the questionnaire to be distributed to your employee and later get the results FREE OF CHARGE, you should write an email to Anca Uzun, consultant at AIMS.

Let’s jointly better understand our Millennials!
