By 2015, half of the global workforce will be composed of Millennials – people born between 1977 and 1997. Given that Baby Boomers are retiring and Generation X constitutes only 55 million people, organizations are concerned about how this generation of 88 million will be mentored. The good news is that Millennials value mentoring relationships and are open to learning from seasoned people with rich life and work experience. They grew up with lots of direction from their parents and teachers, and they thrive on structure and guidance. When mentoring Millennials, it is helpful to recognize that they perceive work as an integral part of life and therefore seek out work that is interesting and fulfilling. They want to feel like they are a part of a larger purpose and seek opportunities to develop their skills.
