Current Realities of Millennials in the Workplace
Millennials will become the majority of the workforce as the older generation is retiring. This generation will form large portions of companies and therefore need to be supported in order for productivity to continue and improve.
The idea that everyone in a generation acts the same as their peers is not the most useful way to conceptualize the workforce. There are some blanket differences between generations, but these distinctions pale in comparison to the stark similarities they share. Maybe Millennials don’t really want to pay for cable or have a landline, but on the macro scale, their desires match those of Gen Xers and the Baby Boomers. They want the opportunity for growth, job security, and a reasonable work-life balance.
