Issa Asad Says that Millenials Get Fired for These 5 Reasons
If you’re privileged enough to regularly sit down with friends, colleagues or acquaintances who own or run their own businesses, it is not hard to borrow a few tips about how the hiring and firing deal works. Well, when it comes to firing, quite a number of companies and businesses let people go due to various reasons.
While it’s true that you can get fire regardless of your gender, age, marital status or the generation you come from, there are some common reasons to which most millennials lose their jobs.
“At least most of the experts, businessmen, and influencers happen to agree that there are particular trends when it comes to fired millennials and the reasons they got sacked,” said Issa Asad Florida entrepreneur, CEO, and social media expert. Mr. Asad is the CEO of Q Link Wireless and Quadrant Holdings, located in South Florida. He is also the author of 4 e-commerce and marketing e-books that can be purchased on Amazon.
Here, Issa Asad Says that Millenials Get Fired for These 5 Reasons:
1. Inappropriate Behavior
This is per se another common reason for firing employees, especially the less experienced ones. It may not be a unique issue to a particular generation, but inappropriate behavior is a common cause of millennial heads rolling. I mean, we’ve heard of popular stars like Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer, and Harvey Weinstein, all losing their jobs to sexual misconduct. But does this mean that the millennial generation is any immune when found with behavioral misconduct issues? You guessed right, the answer is a capital NO. Misogyny in the workplace is real, and a good number of millennials find themselves culprits.
2. Disrespect to Authority
Compared to employees from earlier generations, millennials tend to take their careers less lightly. Most of them tend to look at their jobs as a temporary hold or limiting factor from achieving more in their careers. They end up looking arrogant when they’re actually not or without knowing. Some of them take instructions lightly or refusing them altogether. The truth is, most senior employees and bosses dislike this kind of conduct in the workplace. They look at it as insubordination. This often leads to dismissal at some point, especially if the issue gets uncontrollable.
3. The Need to Be Freer
You can look at this reason in a couple of ways. Firstly, millennials like being independent in their workplaces as opposed to being micromanaged. Secondly, it is possible for an employee to feel tied up by their job. They want to do more with their lives. Most human resource experts agree that balancing freedom with responsibility can solve the problem at least halfway. Employees become more willing to accept the management’s style of doing things when the employer is not too uptight. All the same, it depends on the employers’ principles and way of doing things. Some decide to set you free by dismissal to grant you the independence you need.
4. Lack of Accountability
Nothing quite kills more careers among millennials as excuses do. It’s a wise thing to always ensure that you’re a responsible employee and remain so. When things go sideways, you may want to own the fault, or at least part of it without tainting your image. Never take criticism personally and always seek to learn from such issues. This can be quite a career saver for you as a millennial.
5. No Fear of Being Sacked
A good number of millennials are those who like hopping from job to job or even career to another. Due to this reasoning (that they’re there for a short while), they end up not minding being fired. They will get a job elsewhere anyway and thus don’t fear getting dismissed. This feeling can impact the way someone performs or conducts themselves and how serious they are in the workplace. It can affect how one views their boss, the company, and how things are run. That’s how most of them lose track and end up getting served with a dismissal letter.
