Fast Company - - Special Report - BY YASMIN GAGNE

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
