"Millennials have grown up in a world where digital technology is an ingrained part of their lives. … They expect no less when they join the world of work. A work environment that gives employees the flexibility and freedom to work from their mobile devices, along with a work culture that integrates collaboration and social media technologies - these are all essential ingredients for attracting millennials and others who think like them," notes Infor CloudSuite SVP Lisa Pope in a new diginomica blog post headlined: "Use cloud technology to attract the best new employees."
"So how do you successfully deliver all these technologies and meet millennials' expectations? The answer is surprisingly simple: cloud computing.
To appeal to millennials, you need to provide them with mobile applications that are easy to use, available from anywhere, at any time, and that offer collaboration. And you can do all that through the cloud. In fact, 48% of organizations in a recent IDG survey stated that they already "use the cloud as part of a strategy to attract millennials."
