‘Time and tide wait for none’. Ultimately, it is us catching up with time, in order to reap the benefits of expedient opportunities.
‘New age workforce’ has wonderfully grasped this particular idea. Roughly speaking, the new age workforce refers to Millennials (born between 1981 & 1996). Now, what is it which they are doing differently from say for example, baby boomers and gen X?
Firstly, they are more aware, due to technology being omnipresent. They know what exactly what they want from their professional lives, and how to approach it. More importantly they know what they deserve and hence refuse to settle for less. Rather than following the traditional method of ‘toeing the line’, they prefer creating their own ways in which creativity and independence plays a major part. Studies show that 89% millennials prioritize benefits over pay raises, while 83% would change their job for better benefits. Not only the millennials realise the need to pursue their personal interests, they also understand the concept of mental health well. They don’t view it as a ‘come back later to’ task, rather they prioritize it.
