MILWAUKEE, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) – Millennials are set to run career ultramarathons and anticipate taking breaks along the way, according to a ManpowerGroup report out today. They prioritize job security and the opportunity for new challenges and types of work. Based on a global study of 1,000 Millennials from across the United States, the report provides practical advice to help employers rethink their people practices for attracting, retaining and developing Millennial workers.

"Employers need to listen up and get creative. They simply cannot afford not to appeal to Millennials," said Mara Swan, Executive Vice President, Global Strategy and Talent, ManpowerGroup and Global Brand Lead for Right Management. "Millennials want progression, but that doesn't have to mean promotion. We need new ways to motivate and engage employees, like facilitating on-the-job learning and helping people move around the organization to gain experience more easily. And what works for Millennials works for the rest of the workforce too."
This is the first in ManpowerGroup's series of reports this year focused on Millennials in the workforce; the next report will cover new strategies for managing Millennials, again offering practical advice for attracting, retaining and developing tomorrow's talent.
