For millennials, workplace flexibility and equity between work and home go a long way in enhancing job satisfaction.
So says a report from PwC, a human resources consultant that, as might be expected, also found that younger workers have better technology skills, a global focus and are open to sharing information.
Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, the PwC said its research found no evidence that younger workers have a sense of entitlement, a common complaint from older workers. Rather, PwC said, millennial workers demonstrate commitment and are willing to work as hard as other co-workers.
Still, non-millennial employees also value flexible work schedules, the survey finds. Many say they like to move their hours around to better suit their schedules and are open to working in locations outside of the office.
Employees of all generations, according to the survey, are willing to leave behind pay and put off promotions for fewer hours.
