Thanks to millennials, long gone are the days where you log your eight hours behind a desk doing the bare minimum until you can clock out at 5 on the dot.
“Most workers, many of whom are millennials, approach a role and a company with a highly defined set of expectations,” according to the survey. “They want their work to have meaning and purpose. They want to use their talents and strengths to do what they do best every day. They want to learn and develop. They want their job to fit their life.”
Sixty percent of employees say the ability to do what they do best in a role is “very important” to them. All employees, regardless of age or gender, placed the greatest importance on this aspect of a job. But millennials are more likely than both Gen Xers and baby boomers to say a job that accelerates their professional or career development is “very important” to them. It seems they are not only looking for a job they are passionate about, but one that fits into the bigger picture of their career path.
