When it comes to the workplace, millennials get a bad press. The generation (loosely defined as those born after 1982 and before 2004) tend to be labelled lazy, entitled and glued to their iPhones. But research shows that millennials are a driving force behind workplace change https://www.nbcnews.com/better/careers/7-ways-millennials-are-changing-workplace-better-n761021 and they may feel like they’re “waiting” for their employers to catch up with them.
The changes millennials are pushing for in the workplace are things that are desired by everyone: we want to work flexibly and we want to be happy and productive during office hours. In fact, Gallup http://news.gallup.com/reports/199961/7.aspx consistently finds that flexible scheduling and work-from-home opportunities play a major role in an employee’s decision to take or leave a job.
All employees share this desire for flexibility, but none more than millennials who care deeply about work/life balance, and place an importance on having a life — not just a job.
Flexibility and working remotely come hand in hand and engagement climbs when employees split their time between working remotely and working in an office with their coworkers.
