This week a deep dive into Millennials and their career ambition.
Millennials have now all grown up, graduated from university, and started their
careers. In fact, Millennials, people born between 1980 and the mid-90s, are
currently the largest generation in the workforce – comprising 35% of all
employees. By 2030, those numbers will more than have doubled, to 75%.
Millennials have different expectations for their
careers than their Gen X or Baby Boomer predecessors. They have different
beliefs on how a workplace should function and use different values to
determine what positions they might accept.
While a lot of Millennials are still at the start of
their careers, some have already moved into management or senior roles. This
means they are having decision-making power in the workplace.
In order to successfully recruit Millennials for an organisation, it is crucial to create an environment that accommodates their
unique needs and preferences, not only at entry-level roles but also when it
comes to managerial positions. Here are a few things to keep in mind about
Millennials and how they function in the workplace compared to other
