As of 2015, millennials make up the largest generation in the workforce, and that number will continue to rise in the immediate years ahead. Millennials are no longer a sub-group of employees on the horizon, they are the people leading teams, redefining company culture, and building businesses for the future.
Millennials may be changing the demographics of the workforce, but one constant remains - hiring continues to be the largest expense for companies. It is estimated the cost of replacing a millennial employee ranges from £20,000 to £25,000 on average.
Millenials are looking for something different.
Attracting and keeping employees comes down to many factors, but leaders must not overlook the workplace as a key tool in their arsenal.

Moreover, other top-five factors like work culture and having a mission can be directly impacted by the workplace.
