Millennials: Trends, characteristics and perspectives

Abstract

This book provides an exploration into the diverse ways the Millennial generation is changing our world. Millennials are the largest living generation in size, as well as the largest generation in the current workforce. Every generation has a unique social identity due to the formative events that shape its members’ values and influence their subsequent attitudes and behaviors. Yet, no other generation in history has prompted so much conversation, debate, and controversy as the Millennials. From the time they first stepped foot into our classrooms and workplaces, Millennials have been labeled as the “Me” Generation—considered entitled, with expectations exceeding their qualifications. Popular press headlines have lamented the challenges of working and living with this generation of digital natives who were raised by parents dedicated to protecting their children’s self-esteem and handing out participating trophies.
