The Year of the Millennial, the youngest generation in the workplace that now makes up the largest percentage of workers at 36%. As 10,000 Baby Boomers retire each day (70 million in the decade ahead), the number of Millennials in the workplace is growing at a fast pace – they are projected to make up 75% of the workforce by 2025. Did you know:
88% of Millennials consider a positive work culture essential
60% of Millennials value a sense of purpose in an employer
88% of Millennials don’t feel money is their main motivator
Companies need to realign their management practices around this generation in order to be successful.
What do Millennials want?
They want to be challenged (78% will work for less if challenged)
They want to be coached (75% want mentors & training opportunities)
They want to be trusted (69% want more freedom at work)
They want to be thanked (90% expect daily recognition & feedback)
Failure to provide these things will significantly limit your company’s ability to hire and retain Millennials at a time when organizations will increasingly be experiencing a shortfall of qualified candidates in the years ahead.
Millennials are quick to leave jobs that don’t work out for them.
According to the Harvard Business Review, 76% of younger workers plan to find a new job as the economy further improves.
