    Background Millennials (those born between the early 1980s and the early 1990s) make up a huge part of our workforce but they seem to lack loyalty to the companies and the leaders they work for. Multinational companies are noticing larger turnover rates of millennials as employee retention rates fall. This report looks at the findings of two large-scale surveys on the mindset of the millennial generation and explores how organisations can strive to address these needs, increase employee engagement and encourage retention. Research In a global survey conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), more than 40,000 millennial (born between 1983 and 1993) and non-millennial responses were collected on the topics of workplace culture, communication and working styles, pay structure, career development, work–life balance, etc. In a separate global survey conducted by Deloitte, more than 10,000 millennials participated in a study about their perceptions of the threats and opportunities in the complex world of work. Key findings
    • Millennials are as committed to their work as their more senior colleagues.
    • Millennials value interesting work and a good work–life balance. They do not believe that excessive work demands are worth sacrifices in their personal lives.
    • Millennials want flexibility in their working hours and are willing to give up pay increases and promotions for a flexible working schedule. They believe that success should be measured by productivity and not by the number of hours they are seen in an office.
    • Millennials want to feel supported and appreciated by their company and their superiors.
    • Millennials want more opportunities to develop their skills. These include technological skills, teamwork and interpersonal skills.
    • Millennials believe that businesses and business leaders should contribute to the improvement of society and they are more likely to be loyal to a company with strong ethics.
    Recommendations Organisations and managers wanting to retain millennials should consider:
    • monitoring their workload and satisfaction levels with their work–life balance
    • creating a flexible work culture where employees have more control over their working hours and their work location
    • providing meaningful work and interesting opportunities
    • offering help and support in continuing professional development
    • changing the organisation's goals from being mainly about profit-making to motives that address social concerns and solve wider societal problems.
