According to the United States Census Bureau, millennials are classified as individuals born between 1983 and 2000 and make up about a quarter of the country's population. At the prime of their energy levels and work life, millennials focus less on long-term career lives than their predecessors. Instead, the focus is on short-term goals and a better work-life balance. The traditional distinct facets of life, such as career, family, education, and personal life, are more precise for millennials.
Most prefer to blend them all into a seamless and more fulfilling experience. Examples include the bizleisure working model, where individuals can work from a region of their choice, allowing them to work and enjoy travel, vacation, and leisure simultaneously. Also, millennials prefer skill development at work above other issues, such as immediate monetary benefits.
Another aspect influencing millennials' approach to the work environment is childhood experiences. In almost all cases, the parents were involved in the manufacturing sector and the booming industrial era, and parents typically worked for one employer for decades. After the collapse of the manufacturing industries, with the outsourcing of labor to other countries, and technological advancements, the jobs and skills became obsolete, leading to mass redundancy, rising poverty, depression, and decreased mental health. That experience growing up has influenced most millennials to focus on rapid skills acquisition and development, personal success, short-term goals, and the importance of teamwork.
