Misunderstood Millennial Talent

Joan snyder kuhl and jennifer zepherin

Corporate recruiters and employers tend to perceive Millennials as a major flight risk, not worth investing in because they’ll be out the door in a year or two. Yet our data reveals this stereotype to be grossly misapplied. While Millennials with a financial safety net are far more likely than those who lack it to be a flight risk, they comprise a mere nine percent of this talent cohort. In Misunderstood Millennial Talent, we bust other myths about employees between the ages of 21 and 34 to stress the imperative to talent specialists of investing in this next generation of leaders.
