Millennials breathing new life into the workforce

Perspective series

Millennials are the first generation to grow up as true ‘digital natives’; constantly connected to a range of technology options.

As they become employees, Millennials bring new skills, expectations and challenges for businesses to address.

In this report, we explore the impact Millennials are having on SMEs and HR managers who are tasked with bringing young people into the workplace while balancing the reaction from experienced employees. We also examine the expectations of Millennials themselves, like technology that allows them to work when and where they want.

Finally, we see how the next generation are seeking interactive online communication with their potential employers in a job market where company image can no longer be controlled, but must instead be managed.
