An interesting piece out of Forbes — Some bullet points, as found in the piece, are below. Note a few important concepts which I feel are critical to individual and team success, no matter if you are a “Millennial” or not:

√ A priority for them to make the world a better place
√ Want their boss to serve more as a coach or mentor

√ Prefer a collaborative work-culture rather than a competitive one
√ Want flexible work schedules
√ “Work-life integration,” which isn’t the same as work-life balance

What Millennials Want In The Workplace (And Why You Should Start Giving It To Them)
Rob Asghar, Contributor / Forbes

  • 64% of them say it’s a priority for them to make the world a better place.
  • 72% would like to be their own boss. But if they do have to work for a boss, 79% of them would want that boss to serve more as a coach or mentor.
  • 88% prefer a collaborative work-culture rather than a competitive one.
  • 74% want flexible work schedules.
  • And 88% want “work-life integration,” which isn’t the same as work-life balance, since work and life now blend together inextricably.
