If estimates prove right, the Millennials will make up fifty percent of the American workforce by 2020-21. The arrival of the Millennials –those born in the 20-22 years starting 1982 –has coincided with the eruption of new technologies that are a first of their kind. The growth and widespread use of a myriad of personal devices and the social media have come about simultaneously with the coming of age at which the Millennials have joined the workforce. This being a generation with nearly no forerunners in the sense that they bring ready and profound and sometimes surplus knowledge of technology; the workforce of this generation brings its distinctiveness and uniqueness.
If organizations have to derive benefits from the productive and inventive capability of this generation, they need to get a proper and in-depth understanding of the unique characteristics and features that this bunch brings to the American workforce. In this aspect lies the key to making the kind of changes and adjustments that will help organizations accommodate the Millennials at the workplace. If organizations are casual in this important factor; they end up depriving themselves of what could be a potential beneficial partnership with the Millennials.
