Metro Vancouver’s Millennial Workforce – 5 Myths Debunked

Earlier this year, we conducted our third annual “Dream Employer” poll utilizing our Employee Satisfaction Insights tool–a tool that allows organizations to accurately assess employee satisfaction and compare results to normative benchmarks in order to identify areas of particular strength or weakness.

As part of this study, we explored Millennials in the workforce in efforts to uncover any differences in employee satisfaction, loyalty and engagement between this group and other generations.

Surveying over 2,000 Metro Vancouver employees, we tested commonly held beliefs about Millennial employees, and found the following myths:

  • Myth #1: Millennials are unhappy and frustrated with their current employment situation.
  • Myth #2: Millennials are more concerned about vacation time and work life balance.
  • Myth #3: Millennials are frustrated with their future career opportunities and the level of autonomy in the workplace.
  • Myth #4: Millennials feel they are entitled to higher pay.
  • Myth #5: Millennials are more inclined to participate in charitable activities.
