Millennials aren’t kids anymore. With the oldest of the cohort turning 40 in 2020, many are now executives and CEOS. Fast Company and Inc., with help from career-development site the Muse, surveyed 155 millennials about the way they manage. Like earlier generations of leaders, they care about new products and business growth. Nine in 10 say it is “extremely important” for them to maintain a positive and nurturing culture at work—suggesting that while they may be growing up, they haven’t become cynical.
“Millennials want to do work that’s meaningful, and they want to blend their personal life with their work life. They’ve grown up with access to answers to anything at their fingertips, so it’s not surprising that they crave more transparency and autonomy in a corporate environment.” —Becky, president, creative agency
