Tuesday, May 19, 2015  by julie

According to a recent "Herman Trend Alert" by Joyce Gioia, Strategic Business Futurist, with data provided by a Futurestep study, money doesn't talk to Millennials.

"They used to value money over all of the other aspects of employment. Now, Millennials are 'placing greater value on understanding what a company stands for and how, as employees, they can play a role in growing the organization into a better, stronger brand'. When asked what matters most to employees who are part of the Millennial generation the greatest number of respondents (23%) said it was 'the ability to make an impact on the business', followed by 'a clear path for advancement' (20%) and 'development and ongoing feedback' (16 percent). Income came in at fourth place at only 13%. When executives were asked "what makes Millennials 'choose one job over another', more than a third (38 percent) said 'visibility and buy-in to the vision of the organization' while 28 percent said 'a clear path for advancement'. 'Job title and pay' came in third place at 18 percent."
