What you didn’t know about Millennials

Sep 11, 2022

By Naseerah Nanabhai

Millennials make up the most considerable portion of the world’s population, and having been brought up in the internet age, they are also regarded as the most connected generation.

Millennials refer to people born in the last two decades of the 20th century, between 1981 and 1996. Since Generation X precedes them, they were initially labelled as Generation Y but later identified as ‘millennials’.

While it may be tough to narrow down all the characteristics that millennials have, here are a few common ones:

  • Used to change: Given the significant technological and economic transformations they have experienced, millennials are fully aware that things don’t stay the same for too long, making them used to change.
  • Curious: Millennials are adamant about finding out information. Especially if there is a faster or better way of doing something, millennials want to know. This is a quality that makes them valuable employees.
  • Value collaboration: Millennials enjoy teamwork and cooperative environments, as they can listen to the views of others.
  • Welcome feedback: Millennials are open to feedback and recognize the value of constructive criticism and mentorship while appreciating recognition.

Understanding the generation that you belong to may not be able to dictate your personality or reveal your abilities. But it points out and places you among people who have lived through parallel historical and technological experiences like you.
