The Millennials Have Landed, and the Workplace is Never Looking Back
People born between 1981 and 2000 are all grown up and they’re taking the workplace by storm. More and more baby boomers are retiring and millennials are on track to take their place as the dominant generation, making up 75% of the workforce by 2025.
SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
The largest and most diverse generation in US history has more to offer the working world than just volume. The good news is that millennials are very driven, but employers need to step up their training and development programs to grab their attention and their loyalty.
FOR MILLENNIALS, IT’S NOT ABOUT ENTITLEMENT. IT’S ABOUT ENGAGEMENT.
You’ve heard the hype that millennials expect a corner office by their first year out of college. But this idea of entitlement isn’t quite on the mark. In a recent study, training and development ranked 300% higher than cash bonuses for millennials. Millennials not only seek continuous improvement
and development, but two-thirds expect their employers to provide them with the opportunities.
