In the matter of millennials and how the companies and industries should adapt their approach to them, Francesca Postolache Partner, Audit Services, Leader of The Academy, PwC offered several interesting insights and they could be summed up as the very definition of millennials is change.

According to the PwC manager, the statistic figures are stating that by 2020, around 30 per cent global workforce will be formed of the generation defined as millennials. There are still diverse approaches in understanding the approaches and expectations of young generations regarding their jobs but the key learning point is that all generations hold important the criteria work-life balance, constant feedback- especially feeling appreciated at their jobs. An interesting differentiator between generations is the way they choose to communicate. For instance, millennials prefer to communicate different from previous generations as they mostly exclusively use the electronic ways of communications. In this respect, some communication platforms and tools are more likable to be used by young generations, compared than others. A conclusion is that it is important to educate and develop ourselves, in the digitally transformed work and living environment and to keep up with the present and future. We need to develop the ability to adapt for the future. A long discussed matter regarding millennials is their lack of patience and their likeness to shoes fast a job for another. The companies need to understand that the young generations are not anymore those employees executing tasks and accumulating knowledge on the way their professional evolvement. In this context, the importance of EQ emerge as much the classic IQ. The values are the same for all generations, millennials and non-millennials. However, millennials are more willing to change and try, to have new experiences, to see what it is the best fit for them. Flexibility and reeducation are key words.
