One of the biggest challenges managers face is dealing with the millennial generation, which will account for 36% of the U.S. workforce next year and 75% of the global workforce by 2025. Millennials—those ages 19 to 30 —have a different set of workplace expectations, behaviors and desires that managers need to understand in order to engage them effectively.
Companies are losing their top millennial talent to competitors because they fail to set expectations and support their careers.
