Jolt Manifesto

The only problem with today’s employment system is that it’s yesterday’s.

It comes down to the very basics.

91% of millennial employees say they don’t expect to hold a job for more than 3 years.

Yet, tech companies are overdosing their employees with beers, yoga classes and toys to increase their employee retention metrics, instead of focusing on the one thing millennial employees are looking for in a place of work: professional growth.

 

With industries changing faster than ever before, not growing can mean quickly becoming irrelevant.

For employees and companies, alike. So why isn’t learning integrated into work yet?

 

Our employment system is based on methodologies built to cater to the industrial revolution.

This means every person should have a clear stationary position next to the production line. Maybe that’s why we address having a job with the words “holding a position”.

 

Just think about those words for a second. “Holding a position.”

It has nothing to do with anything our generation cares about. Innovation? Creativity? Leave those outside, the system says, as you enter a cubicle of despair and prepare yourself for years of staying put.

 

Like a slingshot, we’ve been taught to invest our energy into learning once and then let go.

The entire system is here to tell us: work is stationary.

Nothing changes. Learn once and then do the same thing over and over again. This must change. Professional learning cannot be a one-off or one-size-fits-all.

 

In a world where planes and cars fly and drive themselves. In a world with VR and 3D printing and, oh, yeah, the Internet – we cannot expect anything to stay the same. We should expect everything to change. As millennials take over the workforce, we can and we must discuss the future of work. It starts with integrating learning into it.

 

It starts with a Jolt.
