Millennials: Coming of Age

Date: Wednesday 11 October

Time: 09:35 - 10:10

The Millennial generation is coming of age and as they reach their prime working and spending years, their impact on the economy is going to be significant. Coming of age during a time of technological change, globalisation and economic disruption has given them a different set of behaviours and experiences to their parents and their different attitudes to ownership have helped to spawn the ‘sharing economy’. They are the first generation of digital natives and their affinity for technology helps shape how they work, how they vote and how they shop. Gen Z, on the other hand, are just starting to enter the workforce. This will present new challenges for companies looking to understand how this new generation brings something different to the workplace, and what it may take to prepare Millennials to lead them.
