Deloitte, Billie Jean King Team Up for Major Millennial Workforce Study

As millennials are now the majority of the workforce, over half are already ascending into management and transforming the way companies transact business.

As millennials are now the majority of the workforce, more than half are already ascending into leadership roles and transforming the way companies transact business. That change is not always going to be smooth. 'Millennials want purpose in their work,' said Stephanie Turner, manager at Deloitte's Survey Research and Analytics Center. 'This not in sacrifice of profits, but they are saying that profits will follow purpose.' According to 'The Millennial Majority is Transforming Your Culture', a new white paper by Deloitte and the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative (BJKLI), millennials are forging their own career paths and leaving behind the so-called 'way we've always done it'. Nearly two-thirds of millennials saying they chose their organization because it seemed purpose-driven, according to the report. And of those who perceive their organizations as lacking a sense of purpose, only 20% report being satisfied.
