“I’ll probably not work for you if I cannot collaborate using my favorite technology and devices”
Millennial generation students and employees (those aged 14 to 27) expect to use their own technology and mobile devices for work and are increasingly choosing their place of employment based on how accommodating companies are to their personal technology preferences. In addition, more than half of Millennials are either unaware of their companies’ information technology policies or are not inclined to follow them.
These are a few outcomes of the latest Accenture survey, which queried 5,595 employees and students, ages 14-27, in 13 countries. No other company has performed such an in-depth and broad study as this. The study found an increasing demand for high-tech devices to connect with colleagues, peers, friends and family, rather than face-to-face contact. There is a growing disconnect between the technologies that companies provide their workforce and the way young workers actually want to use technology for collaboration in the workplace.
As your organization will be hiring Millennials for the next 15 years, this report will help you by giving you more insights in how to deal with a.o. Security, Security policies and Collaboration.
