How can we increase the millennial workforce

Deloitte Millennial Survey 2020

Rising stress levels depress the mood

Domestic millennials are particularly prone to pessimism in international comparison. According to the survey, 49% of young Austrians believe that they tend to be more unhappy compared to the previous generation. One reason for this is the increasingly hectic everyday life: Almost half of the respondents stated that they suffer from stress very often. Family well-being, as well as future financial security, are the most common triggers for stress. Nevertheless, at 16%, only a small proportion of Austrian millennials have taken vacation in the last twelve months. For comparison: On a global average, 29% took a conscious break.

Mental health is also an important issue in a professional context. Against the background of the Corona crisis, this has been shown once again: Home office, social distancing and the fear of infection have left their mark on young people, too. Companies must react more intensely to this and support their employees in this challenging situation with appropriate measures as best as possible - even after the lockdown.

You can also help reduce stress in a professional context by taking into account the different working styles of individual employees when composing teams. Further information can be found here: Deloitte Business Chemistry Model
