TITLE: “They’re heeeere…” A look at the Millennial generation and how they’re turning traditional talent processes on their heads


Linda Bohnert, Senior Manager, Inclusion Center of Excellence, Deloitte LLP

o   Millennials now represent the largest generation in the United States, comprising roughly one-third of the total population in 2013 (Census Bureau). That equates to an estimated 80 million young Americans who belong to the so-called millennial generation, roughly ages 18 to 35. And they’re taking today’s evolving workforce by storm: it is expected that by 2025, Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce (Deloitte). 

o   As discussed and uncovered in the 2015, BJKLI Deloitte Research “The Radical Transformation of Diversity and Inclusion: The Millennial Influence” concluded that millennials’ views of diversity and inclusion in their organizations are dramatically different to that of Baby Boomers and Gen Xers.

o   And that’s just the tip of the iceberg; the influence of the millennial generation is far-reaching, and their impact can be felt across the talent lifecycle. Millennials are getting organizations to think differently about how to engage with their people – how to attract and develop talent, how to interact at work, and how to redefine priorities to focus on what we know is most important to this generation.
