Millennials are now the largest population in our workforce, having reached this milestone in 2016 when they surpassed the numbers of Gen X, according to Pew Research. The age that defines a millennial varies a bit depending on who you’re talking to or what survey you’re reading, but generally, this group is composed of people born between 1981 and 1996.
Today, millennials are among the most socially conscious, tech-savvy, and innovative employees in the U.S. workforce. If you want to hire millennial talent, you’ll want to create an appealing and attractive workplace they’ll flock to. If not, you’ll probably lose these workers to your competition who are creating millennial-friendly workplaces.
