I receive a lot of phone calls from business owners who say they are having a hard time with retention. They say things like, "All Millennials want to be consultants and freelancers. They refuse to work for anyone, and I can't compete with that."
As a Millennial, I have heard a lot of "job-hopping" rumors about my generation. Odds are, you heard the stories too; "Millennials only take jobs until they can drop [said position] for the next job that comes along." However, studies show that this might be completely inaccurate! Looking at the job retention rates between Millennials vs. Gen Xers, the numbers are roughly the same. Who knew?
