Abstract

The modern workplace can have up to four generations working together but recent literature has shone a bright light on one generation in particular - Millennials. Despite the fact that there is a multitude of research already in existence on this topic, a gap in the literature was identified around manager’s specific perceptions of Millennials in the workplace. It was also highlighted that Millennial staff turnover rates are rising and retention initiatives need to be put in place to counteract this. This research aims to explore manager’s perceptions of Millennials in the workplace while discovering their opinions on the introduction of workplace retention initiatives. The findings presented in the research revealed an insight into managers perceptions of this generation in the workplace and their opinions of the use of retention initiatives. The findings strengthen the existing literature in relation to how managers perceive Millennials in the workplace while revealing mixed reviews on how retention initiatives aimed at reducing Millennial staff turnover rates are perceived.
