Millennial career : Vision 2020

Millennials are set to run career ultramarathons and anticipate taking breaks along the way, according to a ManpowerGroup report out today. They prioritize job security and the opportunity for new challenges and types of work. Based on a global study of 19,000 Millennials from 25 countries, the report provides practical advice to help employers rethink their people practices for attracting, retaining and developing Millennial workers.

  • Millennials are preparing to run career ultramarathons. Over half expect to work past age 65. 27% expect to work over the age of 70, and 12% say they will likely work until the day they die.
  • Millennials are working longer and harder than previous generations.
  • 84% of Millennials foresee taking career breaks longer than four weeks.
  • Millennials are happy to disrupt and be disrupted by new ways of working. Over half say they’re open to new ways of working in the future freelance
  • 93% of Millennials are willing to spend their own time and/or money on further training.

By 2020 Millennials will make up over a third of the global workforce. That’s one reason so many reports about them exist. Some say they are disloyal, self-absorbed and lazy, while others claim they’re a generation of digital entrepreneurs and innovators. Some aim to dispel the myths others have created. Just type “Millennials are…” into a Google search to see the stereotypes. Is your organization ready to attract, retain and develop these workers?
