Millennial vs. Machine:
A Generational Study on Careers, Automation and Getting Ahead in an Era of Uncertainty
Businesses today are interested in millennials - and for good reason. By 2025, that group will make up 75 percent of the global workforce.
Not surprisingly, volumes have been written about millennial work styles and behaviors. But often missing from this discussion are this key group’s perspectives on their own careers. How do millennials feel about their future prospects? What are the career risks today and down the road? Will automation disrupt or influence their careers? What financial and employment risks do they see on the horizon? And especially, how has their experience enduring a major recession and economic resurgence shaped their expectations?
Research from the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School explores these questions. This study, “Millennial vs. Machine: A Generational Study on Careers, Automation and Getting Ahead in an Era of Uncertainty”, examines the attitudes and behaviors of U.S. millennials. Among many findings, the research shows millennials have deep-seated concerns about their careers, the impact of economic and business trends such as automation and future financial and career stability.
