I really appreciate your proactive social media engagement, Ella de Jong. You hit on an important point for companies who aspire to recruit, retain and advance more Millennials.

As noted above, countless studies have shown that workplace autonomy is a key incentive for younger employees (sometimes non-negotiable). Thus, progressive companies who offer the telework option for appropriate jobs have a distinct advantage over the competition in obtaining the best Millennial talent in a fluid global marketplace — which I expect will be just as important to Gen Z as they begin to enter the work world. These two young generations will soon account for the overwhelming majority of the age-based workforce demographic in the coming years/decades. Thanks again for sharing your important insights!
