Study On Millennials: Employment Behaviors - They Are Growing Up As Mature AdultsBy Amanda Foster, UniversityHerald Reporter
Millennials have a stereotype for taking risks and behaving in a different manner than previous conservative and traditional generations. However, evidence shows there is a shift in tides when it comes to their behaviors.
When it comes to the work environment, millennials are stereotyped as job hoppers. Employers and recruiters explain that, in terms of employment and attrition rate, millennials are likely to leave their current job in a few years. But a study according to the 2017 Deloitte Millennial Survey contradicts that stereotype.
The survey indicates that millennials are ever so loyal to their current employer, as reported by Forbes. Compared to the numbers in 2016, the numbers now show a decrease. In 2016, 44 percent planned to leave in the next two years while in 2017 it is 38 percent. Last year, seven percent plan to leave their job soon while it was 17 percent in 2016.
The generation is now shifting from their behavioral description of a young, carefree crowd. It looks like they are becoming mature adults, says Jim Moffatt, the Deloitte Global Consulting CEO. They are responding to the work climate and needs in their environment.
And though that is the case, a report suggests that younger millennials are still reckless in certain aspects. Publications are now covering this generation in another light. Outside the work environment, according to a study done by the AAA, most young millennials engage in risky behavior when driving. These young drivers confess that they know that they are being reckless but can not stop, as reported by CBS Local.
Behaviors include texting or engaging in social media while driving. They are used to having their phones with them all the time. It is only a matter of time until this younger generation grows up into more mature millennials and may change their behavior.
