Auckland Council's principal remuneration advisor opens up about how the organisation remains appealing to millennials
An accomplished HR specialist has urged employers to know their purpose and fully commit to it if they want to remain appealing to millennials.
Here, Wendell D’Cunha – Auckland Council’s principal remuneration advisor – opened up about the challenges of meeting millennial expectations while also catering to the needs of the business.
Our purpose of building a World Class city is a primary driver for most applicants and that remains core to the experience we want our employees to have. We offer market related salaries; allow flexibility to “purchase” more leave; offer employee discounts that are valued and selected by our employees and we are constantly reshaping our recognition scheme to incorporate “what employees want”.
Wendell D’Cunha will be joined by a number of other eminent industry professionals at the upcoming Millennial Workforce Summit on Auckland.
There, he will participate in an informative panel about how HR professionals can balance reward and recognition with reality-checks. He will also lead an interactive roundtable focussing on how HR can develop rewards programs that won’t miss the mark.
More information about the event – which is due to take place in May – can be found online.
