The world is adapting to an entirely different kind of workforce.
What can we learn from Millennial entrepreneurs and their approach to work, and how do we hire, engage, and do business with our next generation of leaders?
We Millennials have surpassed baby boomers in the United States as the largest living generation, according to population estimates released in April by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Defined as those born roughly between 1983 and 2000, we’re a generation worldwide that are changing everything, from work and spending patterns to the adoption of new technology, innovation, and regulation.
We’re starting more companies, managing bigger staffs, and targeting higher profits than our baby boomer predecessors, according to the 2016 BNP Paribas Global Entrepreneur Report. And we’re discovering entrepreneurship significantly earlier than they did.
We may be the startup CEOs of the present, but we’ll be the business leaders of the future.
The opportunity to foster a new economy, triggered by young entrepreneurs, has never been greater, and the way we choose to operate in the business world is set to become the new normal.
