Stop the turnover

what project managers need to know about managing millennials

Millennials, those born between the early 1980s and mid- 1990s, are noted for their high job turnover in many parts of the world. In Australia, for example, employees between the ages of 25 and 35 switch jobs about every two-and-a-half years, and younger millennials switch even more often. This trend can understandably frustrate managers. But given that the generation is becoming largest group in the workforce (it already is in the U.S.), managers must understand what motivates, and matters to, millennials. Doing so can improve retention rates and ultimately save time and money.
