According to a survey that was done by FlexJobs.com, millennials are motivated to make money these days so that they can spend it on travel. After food and shelter, travel was reportedly next on the list of importance.
“The ability to travel is nearly as essential a work motivator as food and shelter, millennials told surveyors recently. It’s a result that employers should consider carefully. Fully 70 percent of millennials identified the desire to travel as a primary reason to work, second only to paying for basic necessities (88 percent).”
The report went on to note how important this is for employers to consider.
“Since millennials are now the largest generation in the U.S. labor workforce, it’s critical that companies pay attention to how, where and when they work best.
Specifically, when it comes to employees wanting flexibility.
“Millennials said they would be more loyal to their employers if they had flexible work options and nearly a quarter would be willing to work more hours,” Sutton Fell said. “So offering millennials work flexibility isn’t just a strategy to avoid negative consequences like losing talent — employers have a lot to gain by modifying their strict, traditional, office-based model of working.”
