In his Jan. 8, 2016 column on “The Self-Reliant Generation,” New York Times columnist David Brooks cited data from CCL researcher Jennifer Deal on Millennials and their career plans.
Brooks writes: “A study of 25,000 millennials in 22 countries by Jennifer J. Deal and Alec Levenson found that at least 40 percent expect to stay with their current employer for at least nine years. Forty-four percent said they would be happy to spend the rest of their career at their current organization.”
The data is featured in What Millennials Want from Work: How to Maximize Engagement in Today’s Workforce, a new book co-authored by Deal and Levenson and released by McGraw-Hill on Jan. 1.
Deal, previously the author of Retiring the Generation Gap: How Employees Young and Old Can Find Common Ground, is a senior research scientist at CCL whose research on Millennials has appeared in Fortune, Huffington Post, Strategy+Business, The Wall Street Journal and many other major media outlets.
