Also called Generation Y, millennials are individuals whose dates of birth fall between the 1980s and the beginning of the 21st century. Generally, all millennials are adults at the present, and many are working and running families of their own. Millennials were raised in the era when the internet, technology, and computers started playing a significant role in reshaping human activities, thus these people had more access to computers compared to previous generations and are much more familiar and comfortable with the digital world and technology. Nevertheless, technological competency varies within the group.
Since they are born in the era of technology millennials broadly understand it, and they are able to get much of their work done with the aid of technology. To complete various tasks faster and easier, millennials use technologies like smartphones and apps. In the 2014 Connected World Technology Report by Cisco, 82 percent of human resource professionals believe millennials are more time-efficient with tasks involving mobile devices and apps as compared to older employees. Their tech-sense contributes to easier multi-tasking, customer service, data input, and modes keeping abreast with updates (such as monitoring on a mobile screen) simultaneously.
