It is time to get to know Millennials.
According to Pew Research Center, Millennials, (Ages 18-34 in 2015), have become the biggest generation in the Canadian workforce. Currently, over one third of Canadian workers are Millennials, a figure which will continue to grow over the coming years. This age group has been studied and surveyed, but yet many companies are still trying to understand the characteristics and choices of this very influential generation. Millennial job seekers are very different from the generations before. They would rather choose when and where they work, rather than being placed in 9 to 5 job – and they place workplace flexibility over how much they get paid. Millennials do not stay at jobs for a long time, with the average tenure being 2 years. This generation is tomorrow’s leaders, so it’s vital that employers who want to attract and retain this digital generation really understand how they think and act.
