The Millenials – Our Future.
IBM recently conducted a study that aimed to separate fact from fiction regarding those that fall into the category of “Millennials”, or what we prefer to call - “The Future of our Industry”.
MYTH #1: THIS DEMOGRAPHIC HAVE UNREALISTIC CAREER GOALS
FACT: They are like everyone else in the workforce. Their goal is to build a career in order to establish financial and job security. What generation before them didn’t want financial and job security?
MYTH #2: THEY EXPECT ENDLESS PRAISE BECAUSE THEY WERE RAISED IN A CULTURE OF “EVERYONE GETS A TROPHY.”
FACT: They want a fair boss who freely shares information, which is no different than previous generations. Interesting fact alert - Generation Xers are the ones who believe that everyone involved in a successful project should be rewarded.
MYTH #3: THIS GROUP IS ADDICTED TO TECHNOLOGY AND THEY LACK BOUNDARIES BETWEEN THEIR WORK AND PRIVATE LIVES.
FACT: The opposite is true, they are much less likely to blur the boundaries between their work and private lives because they’ve been raised with technology. Fun Fact: It’s Gen X and Boomers who need to work on technology boundaries.
MYTH #4: OUR FUTURE LEADERS ARE AFRAID TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR THEMSELVES.
FACT: They simply aren’t as timid about making decisions as everyone thinks they are. Contrary to the mistaken assumption that they tend to buck authority, more than 50% of them trust their company leaders to make decisions that are sound (a figure that’s in line with Boomers and Generation X).
MYTH #5: THEY WILL QUIT A JOB THAT DOESN’T FULFILL THEIR PASSIONS.
FACT: When it comes to changing jobs, this group is like generations before them. The #1 reason they leave is for money/compensation reward, and who can blame them. Fun Fact: Boomers and Generation X, are twice as likely to leave a job for more compensation.
