By 2025, three out of four people in the workforce will be from the Millennial generation.
This workforce comes with considerable strengths according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Millennial Report:
- Millennials are technology savvy (the report called it a “digital sixth sense”).
- Millennials are optimistic. 41% of the people in this generation were satisfied with the way things are going in this country, compared to only 26% of those over 30.
- Millennials excel at multi-tasking.
- Similar to earlier generations, Generation Y cares about those in need, and this population desires a strong family life.
Given their strength in numbers and abilities, how can companies start attracting this workforce now before the Baby Boomers retire?
