It’s no secret that millennials have become major players in the job market and are reshaping the workforce. Diversity and the gender gap have also become key factors, making the female millennial a very important segment of the talent pool for companies to focus on when recruiting.
PwC explored this important talent segment in a recent report, The Female Millennial: A New Era Of Female Talent. The report explored their key characteristics and what is important to this new generation of female talent.
Senior executives are increasingly struggling with managing generational differences in their workforces. Today’s workforce is more diverse than ever – not only in terms of race and gender, but also age, economic status and education.
Poised to make the biggest impact to our workforce today is the Gen Y generation, known as Millennials. Approximately eighty million strong (forty million of which are already in the workforce), this “up-and-coming” generation is, perhaps, the most diverse (and problematic?) generation yet. Largely born in the 80’s and 90’s, Millennials are expected to account for a vast percentage of tomorrow’s leaders. In fact, Millennials will make up three out of every four workers worldwide by 2025.
