A vast number of organizations still pertain to the traditional “top-to-bottom” mechanism when it comes to organizational structure and operations, however recent studies conducted have concluded that in our today’s society, such an infrastructure is completely obsolete. The perfect example that can describe the initiation of this infrastructure is that in the beginning when organizations were few in numbers and vast in manpower, there were not a lot many opportunities available for lower workers to choose from, as alternatives, so they were used to bearing this tiring and medieval “top-to-bottom” structure, where all the power and authority was in the hands of superiors while the lower portion of the workplace was considered as outcasts. However, with the rise of the society of millennials, much of this has changed, since newer society has brought with it a large number of more organizations with even better workplace infrastructures that do not rely on this ‘top-to-bottom’ infrastructure.
Millennials prefer a system where all working bodies are considered equal, however, the authorities may lie in the hands of superiors. This means that the lower portion of the workplace should be requested as much as the upper portion of the workplace. All issues within the workplace should be tackled adequately, and no individual should be perceived as nothing more, or nothing less when it comes to teamwork. We’re seeing the initial stages of this friendly infrastructure already in works and many employers are now using WhatsApp and other groups for communication, where all members of the workplace will have access to information, instead of traditional ‘top-to-bottom’ channels where half of the information dissolves on the way. This promotes transparency, trust, and better work motivation.
