Millennials

Idealists with bills to pay

Millennials (1981-1996) value flexibility, purpose, opportunities for career progression, and customizable benefits. Like Gen Z, they tend to seek out transparent, inclusive organizations. They place a greater emphasis on equity and advancement than older generations but are likely dealing with financial burdens that come with homeownership and parenthood. Pets play a heightened role in Millennial households; benefits should reflect this untraditional family structure.

Expectations:

  • Flexible schedules, remote work
  • Customizable benefits, especially pet insurance and options for mental health
  • Skill-structured career development programs
  • Paid volunteer time off (VTO)
  • On-site daycare or pet care
  • Mortgage services
