In our current political conversations about transgender rights, bathrooms and locker rooms are getting all of the attention but in the workplace, the respectful inclusion of transgender employees goes well beyond the bathroom. Working with employers who have had experiences with openly transgender employees in the workplace, has generated some important lessons learned that may be helpful to others looking to ensure compliant and inclusive practices.

Hi, I was laid off a few months back because our company is now switching to intensive use on automation. I was unprepared for it; I assumed, wrongly, that my job was an iron bowl. I thought I would be safe – I had years of experience, I brought in substantial deals for the company, and I was also mentor to many of my younger co-workers. But still, it was not apparently enough.

Intuit QuickBooks’ Small Business Indexes are monthly reports providing unique and almost real-time insight into employment and revenue trends of the nation’s small businesses with fewer than 20 employees.
The Intuit Small Business Employment Index found that national small business employment remained flat in October, posting a slight increase of 0.01 percent from the September figure. The Intuit Small Business Employment Index
is based on approximately 271,750 small businesses customers of Intuit Online Payroll and QuickBooks Online Payroll, covering the period from September 24 through October 24.
The Intuit Small Business Revenue Index showed that September revenue decreased 0.3 percent nationally. The Revenue Index is based on anonymized aggregated data from over 240,000 QuickBooks Online small businesses, and is the first in the market to provide current information on monthly per business small business revenue.
The Indexes also show:
- Employees got raises: Small business employees saw another increase in monthly pay in October, with compensation rising 0.6 percent. The average monthly pay is currently $2,904, up $17 from September.
- Employees worked considerably more: Average monthly hours worked by hourly employees increased 0.6 percent in October; the equivalent of working 45 more minutes throughout the month (an average of 113.1 total hours in October).
- Revenue declined in August: Small business revenues overall saw a decrease of 0.3 percent in September on a per-business basis. The ‘Real Estate and Rental and Leasing’ category showed the largest monthly revenue decrease of 0.7 percent, while the ‘Construction’ category saw the largest revenue increase last month, rising 0.4 percent.
already have similar programs in place. “These are real hiring efforts, not acts of charity,” said Louden. “Companies are investing a great deal of time and money to recruit and train autistic workers because it makes business sense. The very skills that are innate to their disability make them a valuable asset.”
This stigma is especially troubling for experienced business leaders of today who apparently all got their start sweeping floors before they moved up to the corner office through blood, sweat and tears.
To make their case against hiring Millennials stronger, according to Bloomberg, the “selfie” generation is set to inherit $30 trillion from their parents. Did someone say spoiled?
However, avoiding hiring Millennials is actually misguided and will lead to stale business ideas and ultimately failure. With 83 million members, Generation Y now makes up the largest sector of the U.S. population and by 2025 will make up 75% of the workforce. Translation: these tech-savvy, narcissistic, social media brats are here to stay and will soon be running the global economy.
That is precisely why the business leaders of today that learn to hire and properly manage Millennials will be poised for big things in the future. Those that don’t will lose out to their more forward thinking competitors.
CEO of Peak Sales Recruiting Eliot Burdett has seen world-class companies increasingly hire Millennials and offers six reasons to hire that “lazy” Millennial by EOD.
1. Their Friends Have $1.3 Trillion per Year to Spend
According to the New York Times, Millennials have $1.3 trillion in annual buying power. What better way to infiltrate this market than by hiring one of their own who “gets them.” Reap the benefits of hiring candidates that can speak their language.
2. Don’t Believe the Negative Hype
The belief is these guys are lazy. However, they helped develop Apps that allow people to deposit a bank check from their mobile device in seconds without driving to the bank, waiting on lines or laboriously filling out forms. If laziness caused this innovation, may they never develop ambition.
3. They Are Inherently Global, Mobile and Social
The reason Tiger Woods at one point was devouring his competition was because he had innate abilities. His father taught him to hit balls as soon as he could walk, and before that he was even photographed sitting inside a big bucket of balls. Similarly, Millennials have only ever known how to think global, mobile and social. Hire them and they will infuse your business with energy and mind boggling ideas that would never have occurred to you.
4. Get Past the Generational Differences
Our grandparents could not understand rock and roll. Our parents could not understand rap music. We don’t understand why kids today don’t play outside. But these young candidates can code, develop apps and algorithms that will change the world. It is time to get over their shortcomings, and get down to 21st century business.
5. Their Traits Can Absolutely Be Managed
Are they perfect? Far from it. However, the key is to identify their flaws and learn to mitigate them. For example, they are known as the trophy generation because they received positive recognition even when they didn’t win. If they need to improve they will respond better to mentoring than disciplinarian tactics. They are also used to constant stimulation including 24-hour news cycle, food delivery on-demand and the endless possibilities that the Internet and social media afford, so keep them busy with different types of projects. By understanding Millennials weaknesses and tweaking your approach you can maximize their productivity.
6. The World Is Following Their Lead
We all remember the strange feeling in the pit of our stomach when mom popped up on Facebook. As little as five years ago older generations scoffed at social media. The rapidly changing way we do business and communicate is led by Millennials and the entire world is following their lead. Get them onboard and they can introduce your business to people from all walks of life.
