Millennials Lazy? Think again...

By allowing stereotypes to cloud judgement, employers are losing out on a potentially great asset that is able to achieve the fast-paced growth required in the region. A recent study shows that millennials constitute 43 percent of ‘work martyrs,’ a term used to describe people who struggle or refuse to take their vacation time because of how they think their work projects will suffer.

At least 24 percent of millennials forfeit their annual leave, compared to 17 percent of the baby-boomer generation. The study shows that if a company wants hard-working people with creative ideas who are willing to prioritize short-term growth over their personal lives, it should hire more millennials.
