Greensboro, NC – In her newest post as a member of The Wall Street Journal’s panel of online leadership experts, CCL senior research scientist Jennifer Deal examines “How Single Millennials Will Change the Workplace“. Demographic data projects that there will be more single Millennials than there were in the Gen X and Baby Boom generations, and a greater proportion of Millennials will also be single parents. Those trends, Deal says, mean that unattached Millennial employees will be free to take on a wide range of assignments in organizations, especially ones that require changing locations. But at the same time, single Millennials with children will have less freedom and require more work-life support from their employers.

jennifer-dealDeal concludes: While organizations will likely benefit in some ways from the increased number of single employees, they will also need to be proactive in helping working parents manage these issues or risk talent leaving for organizations that are more accommodating of real-life demands.
