Four charts show how they vary by region.Adapted from “What Millennials Want from Work, Charted across the World” by Henrik Bresman Survey conducted by INSEAD’s Emerging Markets Institute, Universum, and the Head Foundation.
As more millennials move into leadership positions, organizations around the world are becoming increasingly interested in how to manage them. A recent survey of more than 16,000 millennials in 43 countries highlight some key regional distinctions that managers might find useful. First, millennials want to become leaders for different reasons in different regions. The right blue bar in the chart you see here reflects this generation’s interest in high future earnings, something that was popular in all regions.
But other reasons stood out too. The paler blue bar shows interest in opportunities to gain influence in the company, it was also popular. Challenging work on the other hand, which is the dark gray bar, was the least popular answer in every region except Asia and Africa.
Millennials around the world also want different things from their managers. The right blue bar represents the percent of millennials who want a manager who empowers their employees, which was popular in North America, Western Europe and Africa.
Millennials in the Middle East and Latin America preferred a manager who could be a role model, which you can see from the light gray bar. Most analyses of millennials will mention that this cohort values work-life balance, but what they miss is that this term doesn't mean the same thing to everyone.
It's true that most respondents define it as having enough leisure time for my private life, which is the bright blue bar, but the percentage that did so varied widely from Africa to North America. Flexible working hours, the lighter blue bar also stood out across most regions, as did recognition and respect for the employees.
When millennials were asked about their priorities in life, spending time with family ranked highly around the world. That’s the orange dot here. It was the top priority for those in Asia, Latin America, North America, and Western Europe. The green dot represents having a successful career, that was most popular choice in Africa.
The blue dot represents learning new things, which was the top choice in Central Europe and the Middle East. Perhaps surprisingly for a generation sometimes seen as both materialistic and pretty social, the researchers found that both wealth, the black dot, and having many good friends, the gray dot, were not actually top priorities for most millennials.
