Millennials Are Rewriting the Rules of Work and Entrepreneurship

Millennials Are Rewriting the Rules of Work and Entrepreneurship | X to Y to Z: a generational shift | Scoop.it

HR and communication challenge s ahead... What do Millennials want? Flexibility and independence top the list, according to a new study, “Millennials and the Future of Work,” from oDesk.... Millennial workers want freedom and the flexibility to work how they want. Many Millennials have a “freelance” attitude. Almost nine in 10 (89 percent) say they prefer to work when and where they choose (compared to a corporate, 9-to-5 job). When comparing freelance work to “regular” jobs, Millennials say freelancing gives them more freedom to: - Work wherever they like (92 percent). - Work whenever they like (87 percent). - Work on more interesting projects (69 percent). - Travel while working (half say they’d prefer this to taking vacation time). You Might Have a Closet Freelancer on Your Staff Many Millennials are biding their time at regular jobs and freelancing on the side until the time is right to leave. Nearly three-fourths (71 percent) of those who work regular jobs want to quit to be entirely independent; 61 percent say they likely will quit within two years, and 17 percent say they definitely will....

Very interesting, the technology certainly exists to make this real. Organisational structures however, are slower to change. The move to flexibility I think is a good one, affording a better work life balance.

HR Trend Institute's curator insight, January 14, 2:44 PM

"Companies that provide development support and resources will be well-positioned to attract and retain Hispanics. Informal, on-the-job mentoring, as well as financial support for formal learning is important. Members of this cohort are less likely to be attracted to ambiguous, “define your own job” positions and, perhaps because of the sense of broad family responsibility, are less likely than other ethnic groups to be attracted to entrepreneurial settings".

Voice of the Graduate | McKinsey & Co.


Via Jim Lerman, David Hain

Jim Lerman's curator insight, May 14, 2013 5:12 PM

From the introduction

 

"There’s a paradox facing American society today. The demonstrable economic benefit of investing in higher education has never been greater. Research in the United States shows an enduring positive impact on earnings directly associated with the level of postsecondary learning a person attains. And research from around the world shows a link between college education and levels of individual and national well-being more broadly.

 

"Yet at the same time, as the survey discussed in this report will show, this potential does not appear to be fully realized in the lived experience of many recent graduates.The gap between higher education’s undeniable value and the concerns many recent graduates nonetheless report should become the impetus for change. In a sense, the “voice of the graduate” revealed in this survey amounts to a cry for help—an urgent call to deepen the relevance of higher education to employment and entrepreneurship so that the promise of higher education is fulfilled.

"By focusing on the voice of America’s young people, this report, by design, raises more questions than it answers. Our hope is that the underappreciated student perspective can serve as a fresh spur to a conversation that seems overdue.

 

"As every thoughtful observer recognizes, the improvements today’s graduates are calling for cannot be pursued by any education stakeholder working alone. Instead, as McKinsey’s work around the world on its “education to employment” initiative suggests, it is only when employers,education providers, public officials, families, and youth advocates work together that effective solutions can be forged."
