“...because of Millennials!”
According to a Pew study, the millennials account for around 54 million, globally and this number is rapidly increasing! They’ll soon make up the majority of the workforce and every 3 out of 4 workers will be millennials.
Millennials demand real-time collaboration where people work in groups on a project at the same time.
As social media has been an active part of their life, they thrive to socialize and collaborate across all aspects of their life, whether it be working out in the gym or sipping coffee at a coffee house.
Thus, the demand for working remotely has increased over the years and they can yet stay connected to their colleagues through Microsoft Teams!
The Dynamics of Millennials
Microsoft surveyed around 1,000 millennials about their work preferences as a way to study this modern workforce. They studied the changing working patterns such as working from anywhere at any time and having a mission objective that helps gain a better perspective of their jobs.
Microsoft understood that it’s important to start taking notice of this dynamic nature of millennials as they’ll be taking over leadership roles as well as many vacant opportunities left behind by Gen X and Baby Boomers in multiple sectors.
The company also saw a 40% boost in productivity of the employees under their ‘Work-Life Choice Challenge 2019 Summer’ project that reduced the workweek by one day, making it a 4-day-work-week at Japan’s office.
Microsoft made sure that the amount of time spent in meetings as part of the project was less than or equal to 30 minutes and they also encouraged remote connections.
Not only did employees benefit from this experiment but it also helped the company preserve electricity and increase server uptime among other benefits.
