A generation on the move: productivity and the rising mobile, millennial workforce

The workforce is changing, thanks to growth in mobile technologies and an even more dramatic rise in the number of millennial workers. As these shifts continue, companies will need to understand the unique expectations of millennial workers, including more flexible working hours and mobile technologies that allow them to remain productive outside of the office.

Millennials and mobile technology are changing the nature of work.

According to the PwC’s 14th Annual Global CEO Survey, by 2020, millennials will make up 50% of the global workforce.

That’s a lot of millennials.

The growth of a younger workforce coincides with a rise in mobile technology that is changing expectations for where, when, and how we work. As companies compete for millennial talent, they’ll need to consider what these new expectations are, including more flexible working hours, environmental consciousness, and having mobile technologies supplied by the organisation. There are many employee-focused benefits for companies that adopt and deploy mobile technologies, including increased productivity, greater satisfaction, and stronger rates of retention.

So, what exactly have we learned about the mobile, millennial workforce that points to these trends? View Nuance’s recent Slide Share to find out.
