Millennial Careers: 2020 Vision
ManpowerGroup commissioned a quantitative global study of 19,000 working Millennials and 1,500 hiring managers across 25 countries to understand what Generation Y wants now and in the future, and help individuals and organizations succeed in this new world of work. Millennials were identified as those born between 1982 and 1996.
The research population included an independent sample of 11,000 working Millennials equally balanced across age ranges and genders from 18 countries representing all regions. We also surveyed more than 8,000 ManpowerGroup Millennial associate employees and 1,500 hiring managers across 25 countries. Speaking to both groups gave us unique perspectives from both the employers and employees.
Millennials are set to run career ultramarathons and anticipate taking breaks along the way, according to a ManpowerGroup report. 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.
This is the first in ManpowerGroup’s series of reports this year focused on Millennials in the workforce.
