Dr. Fermin on Engaging Millennials
Here’s what people are saying about the book
"This is a must-read for anyone who is aspiring to or continuing to thrive in the Big Wide World filled with cross-generational mindsets and vibes. Engaging Millennials is the second sequence after Empowering Millennials and is the "New Love Language" to master building authentic and trustworthy connections for better engagement that will deliver results. In a world filled with algorithms, hashtags and remixes, Engaging Millennials takes a deeper dive into cultural nuances, borderless expectations and a culmination of global challenges that unite leaders across the world"
Indeed an insightful guide for leaders who wish to unravel the hidden potentials of Millennials under their charge. If you wish to optimise the talent and motivation of the Millennials already within your rank (or those you plan to headhunt), look no further. This is the guide for you.
It is an interesting read and I found it enlightening. Everyone seems to be focussing too much on understanding and handling millennials and not putting much effort in encouraging more collaboration amongst the different generations. We must always remember that all every generation has great experiences that they have gone through and the more we understand and share with each other, the stronger we will emerge.
"This book is for all leaders who want to engage the multi-generational workforce and celebrate diversity by understanding how to empathise with every generation. A great guide to understand how Millennials function and leverage their strengths for the greater good of the organisation."
Vivek's endeavour, via this book, to enhance workplace efficiency and effectiveness through unhindered collaboration with different generations, is progressive and highly commendable. I am impressed by the content depth, thorough research & analysis and exciting subject matter correlations being made with the field of Psychology. The parallels drawn with Psychology helps decode the whys and wherefores of a gamut of the Millennials' being. Manager tools and various mental models being introduced further down in the book seem to be full of promise in engaging the Millennial human capital to its best potential and in the best interests of both the organisation and the employees."
" A powerful tool for managers and leaders alike to understand how to engage and get the best out of their millennial workforce to supercharge and bulletproof their organisation." -
"Interesting perspectives and ideas backed up by real-world experiences and thorough analysis! A timely book that fills a known gap for solid reference material on specific hues of Millennials in Asia. Essential reading for anyone seeking to engage or interact with Millennials (and soon, Centennials!) in any capacity.”
Vivek puts into context the ways Millennials differ from previous generations and shares practical steps companies and leaders can take to boost productivity
His writing style is easy to follow without talking down to the reader. He brings a fresh, contrarian eye to some of the usual data points. A good book to understanding a conversation between cross-generational teams.
“The book really highlighted the issues if millennials are not managed well and it would be at high cost to the organisations. It takes two hands to clap. As the book brought awareness the older generation, it will be great when we also have the millennials do take the effort to bridge the gap as well”
Here is a much needed book that fills a niche, helping to unveil the mysteries around attracting, recruiting and retaining the Asian Millennial in a fast changing world. Vivek has put his wealth of knowledge gathered from working closely with multigenerational age groups towards creating this book. His recommendations are supported by insights grounded in real-word experience.
Vivek has written a book with brilliant insights and deep research. I would highly recommend it to all leaders leading multigenerational teams!’
As a leader of Millennials and a Millennial myself, I've heard it all about our generation: We're lazy, entitled, afraid of feedback—you name it. These stereotypes come from a fundamental misunderstanding of who Millennials are and what we need in order to thrive. I really appreciate Vivek's book because it helps fight back at these damaging stereotypes and prepares leaders for the kinds of environments they will need to create in order for their Millennial team members to shine.
"Vivek has covered many aspects of understanding millennial employees, which business leaders of today need to know. The book will help them in bridging for intergenerational communications at workplaces. Vivek also has touched upon socio-economic angles, which will help leaders understand the mindset of millennials outside office hours. A useful reference for anyone who works with millennials."
This book is key to understand the Millennials outlook at the workplace, the concepts are well supported by good research references and theories that make it easy to understand the Millennials perspective in the diverse organisation with the multi-generation workforce.
It's well analysed and written. A great book to understand the Millennials better, especially for the earlier generations.
"Vivek Iyyani puts forward a compelling approach through which organisations can create an enabling environment where Millenials can grow, perform and thrive. His 7-F formula make total sense in today's world"
“Engaging Millennials gives an in-depth insight of Millennials today. It is an eye opener as it shares the people’s views and opinions pertaining to issues of Millennials not just at work but also everyday life. In this global pandemic world, Engaging Millennials sheds light on how Millennials can be the strategic differentiator for all types of organisations”
Inter-generational myopia, has plagued societies and organisation for long. Understanding Millennials, you face a wall and this books provides you new lenses, to view them and get a sharper picture. It is a book ‘of' the millennials, ‘for' the millennials and ‘by' the millennials, held out to help others. Vivek makes you take a valuable peek into their minds!
“Well researched, informative, and packed with helpful insights to understand and engage Millennials.”
There are a lot of books on generations but hardly any that takes into consideration the Asian culture and dynamic. ‘Engaging Millennials’ is a clear, convincing and compelling read for all Organisational leaders. Vivek packs this book with well thought out insights on the Millennial’s mindset, strengths, challenges and motivations. An excellent read.
“Engaging Millennials is a must read book for anyone who are managing millennials in the workplace. It is indeed very timely especially post COVID as the millennials will form the bulk of the talent pool who will steer companies to fully recover from this pandemic. It has detailed the challenges faced in managing millennials and offer great insights in how to retain and motivate millennials to effectively contribute to their companies success.”
“Generation gap is often the most over-used term when conflicts arise at the workplace. This book attempts to add context and data points that helps people like me ( Baby Boomers and Gen X) who are digital immigrants basically to understand what motivates and drives digital natives like the Millennials ( aka Gen Y) and Gen Z - an insightful read to help managers effectively embrace differences, leverage every generations’ strengths and create impact”

THE 7 FUNDAMENTALS TO ENGAGING MILLENNIALS
How to Build an Employer Brand that Appeals to the Largest Generation in the Workforce
Fundamental 1: Fulfilment
Millennials love to know the WHY. How are your employees' knowledge and skills are applied in a meaningful way? What is the direct impact they make to the world around them? Do you know your purpose? How are you connecting the dots for employees and your team members to find their purpose?
Fundamental 2: Futuristic
As we move into Industry 4.0, it becomes an inevitable fact that we will need to leverage on technology to stay relevant in the industry. Technology becomes an enabler for speed that will eliminate unnecessary processes that are time consuming. How are you applying technology within your teams to optimise productivity?
Fundamental 3: Friendships
The world post COVID-19 has become lonelier as we work from home. People miss the things in-between, the chit chat, the grapevine, the banter that happens before meetings or during lunch. Question is, how are you developing the friendships with your team in a virtual world with limited social interactions?
Fundamental 4: Frequent Feedback
The Annual Performance Appraisal is good enough as a formality, but you need to have more informal check-ins with your employees and team members to re-affirm that they are on the right track. However, are you doing it in a way that is empowering, or damaging the productivity of the team?
Fundamental 5: Forward Framework
Millennials showed a concern with opportunities for lateral and vertical career growth and professional development opportunities. How are you investing in your team to ensure they are growing as an individual? Have you done up a career road map with them? What opportunities lie in store for them?
Fundamental 6: Freedom
COVID-19 accelerated work-from-home and employees are happier working from home while visiting the office for a few days a week. Their desire to balance work related with non work related commitments such as family, leisure activities, or volunteering is met with flexible working arrangements
Fundamental 7: Fun
How "exciting". "cool" or "hip" is your workplace? Do you have a culture that is instagram-worthy that will make candidates swoon, or is it still the same old bunch of cubicles with a clock-in clock-out system? In a world full of options, what is your organisation doing to stand out amongst the recruiting competitors to pull in the best talents?

Frequently Asked Questions
Engaging Millennials is all about reimagining the workplace based on the inventions of today as opposed to the rituals of yesterday. As the young generation enters the workforce, empowered by technology, they are no longer coming into the workforce with the mindset of staying in one job for a lifetime. Today, they can choose to be a gig worker, self employed, an entrepreneur or all of the above because they know how to earn a living with technology.
This book shares with leaders of teams and organisations on the key fundamentals that they need to put in place in order to build a strong employer brand to attract and retain the best talents in the market.
Baby Boomers - 1946 - 1964
Gen Xers - 1965 - 1979
Millennials - 1980 -1995
Gen Z - 1996 - 2010
Today's workplaces are badly broken. With 85% of employees disengaged, 23% feeling burned out, and 37% believing that their job makes no useful contribution to society, the way we do work is orthodox in many different ways
Based on my conversations with Millennials, I realised the severity of the issue and thought to myself, "There has to be a better way!"
That set me on the journey to find out which companies are highly desired by my peers and which ones are not - and to investigate why. This book is my labour of love over the past four years and it showcases an alternative pathway to become a progressive organisation that challenges the norms and makes the workplace a better one.
This book is written for Leaders in organisations at every level - whether you are a HR Manager, a business owner of an SME, a director of an agency, or a line manager with a team of Millennials under you, this book has been written for leaders who work with Millennials on a regular basis
