Why Are Millennials Hell-Bent on Flexibility at Work?
Here are three key factors influencing Millennials’ preference for flexible work options.
1. Work-Life Balance
… for Millennials specifically, Deloitte’s 2016 Millennial Survey found 88 percent wish they had the ability to choose when they start and finish work. This flexibility supports the desire for better work-life balance so they can create schedules that work with their lives, including when and where they want to work.
Millennials have no interest in the traditional 9-to-5 schedule. They prefer to set their own hours and complete tasks in the way that works best for them. This means employers need to offer flexibility that gives them the option to work remotely, attend meetings virtually, and collaborate online rather than in face-to-face meetings. …
3. On-Demand Work
Another factor driving Millennials’ need for flexibility is the growing gig economy, or on-demand work options. On-demand jobs are appealing to Millennials because they offer exactly the type of flexibility they desire — the ability to set their own hours, seamless technology to find and complete work, and the ability to take on work or ‘gigs’ that appeal to them most.”
