Millennials are currently 35 per cent of the workforce, outnumbering both Generation X and Baby Boomers. What’s more, is that they are slated to become 75 per cent of the workforce by 2025. Certain industries do not currently appeal to Millennials because they are interested in more than just making a living. One such industry is Logistics & Supply Chain Management. Fewer Millennials are interested in it, however, we do see a few of them joining the industry too.
Millennials join by choice or by chance?
“It all started with a family transport company,” said Arshdeep Singh Mundi, Executive Director of the Ludhiana-based Jujhar Group. This was always my main objective.”
Impact as a Millennial
As per Arshdeep, “From culture to politics to commerce, each generation reshapes the world in its own image.”
Influencing modern mobility
Arshdeep says, as a result, millennials have high expectations of their employers when it comes to technology. Android-based mobility solutions can boost agility and speed, resulting in higher productivity by allowing workers to perform tasks more rapidly. Another advantage is that they enable warehouse personnel to transition away from manual work and paper-based tracking. This can improve efficiency and accuracy in crucial activities such as inbound and outbound handling, storage, inventory control, and pick and fill. Because of the user-friendly interface of the Android OS, organizations can profit from greater knowledge-sharing among staff. “
“I believe that if you are in this sector, regardless of what age you are or what year you were born, you are making a difference.”

Initial days challenges
“The first job is a new chapter of life that should be handled with optimism,” says Arshdeep. Yes, you will face some challenges along the way. You must have ambitious aims and desires for your first work as a new employee.
Traditional methodology vs. modern managerial approach
Arshdeep explains. Because each generation grows up in a distinct setting, they may have different work expectations.
This project management style requires the completion of one task before beginning the next. It is still used by many firms today, and it works effectively for projects with a predetermined budget or deadline.Modern project management makes use of automated solutions to help with task planning, execution, and organisation. It’s also seen to be the most versatile of the two ways. The current project management system thrives in a fast-paced setting that can handle mid-project adjustments swiftly and efficiently. “
“It’s not so much a generation gap as it is an ideology, thought process, working style, and experience gap.”
Handover of responsibilities
“It was a gradual, step-by-step process, starting from the core of mastering the principles of each function and then gradually taking over,” Arshdeep explained.
