HackTM 2015 – Let’s Code and Make Together

Programmers are a different breed of professionals. I am stating this after spending thousands of hours with them (as a non-programmer and attentive observer). Future or current, junior or senior, freelance or employee, entrepreneur or consultant programmers, they all have a special set of personality traits significantly differentiating them from other guilds: they strive to create, they want to share, they dear to compete, they show the mastery of their art, they chase the challenges much more than others.

I do not know another professional group members so regularly committing time after long office hours presenting and debating new technologies, showcasing core-business or collateral, pet-projects, asking for and/or offering feedback, late in the week’s working days meetup events. They are mentoring in the 7 CoderDojos in the Timisoara Metropolitan Area for almost 52 Saturdays a year, bringing knowledge, friendship, self-confidence, empowerment and joy to large groups of 7-17 years old coding ninjas, they future co-workers, employees or, why not employers… 🙂

Their passion drives their interest and activities in so many different directions, best demonstrated by the diversity of Timișoara constellation of specialized tech communities illustrated in the city’s meetup.com record.

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!
