Four years ago, we began a study into the future of people management with our report, ‘Managing
tomorrow’s people – the future of work 2020’, which explained how globalism, technology, and sociopolitical
and demographic changes would influence the way businesses operate in the future. The
follow-up report, ‘millennials at work: Perspectives of a new generation’, was published in 2008 and
highlighted the characteristics of the newest generation of workers.
This latest report aims to provide some insight into the minds of new graduates from around the world
entering the workforce for the first time. CEOs are becoming increasingly concerned that they will
soon be unable to find the talent that they will need to succeed, with a shortage of suitably skilled
workers their single biggest worry. Businesses are competing fiercely for the best available workers
and for the talent that will replace the retiring Boomer generation in the coming few years. Every
year, more and more of that talent will be recruited from the ranks of millennials.
As they begin their working lives, what are the hopes and expectations of this generation? And most
importantly, do business leaders and HR teams need to revise their current strategies accordingly?
PwC commissioned Opinium Research to carry out an online survey of 4,364 graduates across 75
countries between 31 August and 7 October 2011. 1,706 of these respondents were PwC graduate
recruits or responded through PwC’s website. Overall, 1,470 PwC employees and 2,894 other
graduates responded to the survey. All were aged 31 or under and had graduated between 2008 and
2011. 75% are currently employed or are about to start a new job. 8% were unemployed at the time
they filled in the questionnaire. The rest were self employed or returning to full-time education. 76%
of those with a job said it was a graduate role, while 12% had a job which did not require a degree.
Quotes from the millennials who participated are included throughout this report.

    If you have read Charles Handy his books also address this topic of 'work' and how it is changing.

    A really useful study well done PWC.
