Individualized, Smart, Social, Fast & Fun: The Secret Sauce to Gen Y Engagement


“The online courses on the Phonize platform are designed to “morf” in response to an individual’s progress, providing specific and virtual coaching,” said Hanif. “The product also offers game-like capabilities for an individual to compete with other team members and earn rewards as progress is made. The solution offers managers a quick and easy way to get reporting on an individual’s progress and compare with other staff performance.”


IMG_1893Bell commented on why this matters in the world of training. “The trainings you received in the 20th century, and that you are likely delivering to your employees today, don’t cut it with Millennials. They are a different breed of learners, and if the training culture of your company isn’t up to snuff by their standards, you will likely watch these young geniuses come and go, taking with them valuable human resource opportunities and wasting your time, money, and effort.”


According to Bell, a veteran training expert, and in accordance with many studies on Gen Y, Millennials want engagement. They want mobility and they want social feedback online. They want participation and connectivity, and they definitely expect technology. Bell, stated, “Imagine a training where, instead of human widgets all sitting obediently in their rows, trying to consume particle-board-dry information, there is dynamism. Imagine the energy in your company when new hires feel empowered to contribute to a training, are given a chance to express some ownership, and thus find a deeper meaning for themselves than just the acquisition of facts. Imagine that these trainings take place in a fraction of the time of the old-school model. They are attended on mobile devices, giving employees the creativity and flexibility that has been a hallmark of the Millennial generation from the beginning. That is what we are building into the Phonize platform right from the start.”


“It’s clear that purely transactional relationships with Millennial employees do not retain them,” said Axel von Schubert, PHONIZE co-founder and president of J.P. Capital Investments Ltd. “In the on-boarding process, training is one of the first experiences new hires face. Smart design and gamification utilizing core drives, are the ingredients of the secret sauce that motivates Gen Y to get on board, stay on board, and contribute the best this generation has to offer: vitality, creativity, flexibility, and generosity.”
