pect with us and how they will have the op­por­tu­nity to work with mul­ti­ple tech­nolo­gies,” said Naina Agar­wal, tal­ent ac­qui­si­tion man­agerearly ca­reers, In­tuit In­dia.

The com­pany also fo­cuses on show­cas­ing its ben­e­fits pack­age as a holis­tic one so that stu­dents re­alise that there’s much more to join­ing an or­gan­i­sa­tion be­sides solely the com­pen­sa­tion of­fered.

NetApp has its chal­lenges too, with dis­ci­pline top­ping the list. “Ear­lier, work from home was con­sid­ered sham­ming the com­pany. But now you can be pro­duc­tive from home too, since there are more op­tions for com­mu­ni­ca­tion,” said Anil Val­luri, pres­i­dent of Netapp In­dia. He said the com­pany has had to change it­self as per the chang­ing needs of the younger em­ploy­ees.

At Synop­sys, em­ploy­ees are told to self-reg­u­late their so­cial me­dia us­age. A third of Synop­sys’ 2,400-plus em­ploy­ees are mil­len­ni­als. The com­pany does not reg­u­late or re­strict so­cial me­dia us­age among em­ploy­ees but fully ex­pects them to be able to bal­ance out their day.

But some team lead­ers say it is only a mat­ter of get­ting used to to the mil­len­nial way, which isn’t nec­es­sar­ily in­cor­rect. And that a bal­anced en­gage­ment be­tween the two leads to a healthy work en­vi­ron­ment.

To­day, con­ver­sa­tions are less for­mal than ever be­fore and com­pa­nies have ac­cepted that. Rat­tan Keswani, deputy man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Lemon Tree Ho­tels, says, “In­for­mally, our man­ager and mil­len­ni­als must have the flex­i­bil­ity to un­der­stand which method works best for both of them.”
