From our previous blog instalments, we have discussed how millennials will transform the workplace and how businesses need to be able to effectively adapt to the changes they will bring or risk being left behind.Millennials feel that lifelong learning is the key to happiness and they want to experience as much training as possible and we believe this needs to be addressed within every workplace.
Who are Millennials?
- They are born between 1980 - 2000
- They are truly the first digital generation, whose unique life experiences have changed the way we live and work and consume, it is even reported that the lifestyles and attitudes of this generation are a fundamental cause of the rapidly changing world.
- Currently, they make up a quarter of the UK population with the estimation of them increasing to 17 million by 2019.
- In 2015, they took over the population in baby-boomers making them the largest generation in western history.
