Academic Journal
The article discusses the employment of the Millenial generation, which is made up of a workforce that was born between 1978 and 1989. Millenials are characterized for their optimism and expectations of success, but are poor at making long-term plans and realizing their hopes. They will work hard to get their job done but only if they know that their efforts will benefit them in the short and long-terms. In addition, they place a strong importance on balancing work and leisure time. To capture these employees, firms must carefully craft their hiring messages and focus on retention.
