The Reality of Working with Millenials

Read the full paper.

Description:

A survey conducted at the 2015 Simmons Leadership Conference looked at the stereotypes regarding Millennials and the Multigenerational Workplace. The study found two key observations: 

  • Women in the Millennial generation maintain similar perceptions to women from other generations about Millennials.
  • Women within the Millennial generation have a different self-perception versus their perception of their generation.

Overall, multigenerational workplaces need to gain more accurate understandings of Millennials than forming opinions on inconsistent stereotypes.
