When it comes to life on the job, Millennials, who are slated to become half of the workforce in a matter of years, have markedly different goals from their parents. These include a demand for greater social responsibility on the part of their employers.
It's not about the moneyMillennials aren’t as focused as their parents were when it comes to direct compensation, pensions and benefits. That concern is, instead, replaced by a greater concern over whether their work is meaningful. As Jason Rezepka, vice president of public affairs at MTV, told TedxPresidio, ”There’s a growing hunger, particularly from Millennials entering the workforce, to engage in meaningful work that doesn’t just make old, rich, white guys richer. If you don’t offer your employees this opportunity, someone else will.” In this photo, a visitor stands in front of the painting "200 One Dollar Bills" by Andy Warhol on display at an auction house in London.Sang Tan/AP
