The PreparedU Project: Millennials in the Workplace

9

The Millennial Preparedness Survey questioned 3,000 respondents across nine audiences and examined skills, traits, use of technology, workplace attitudes and expectations, along with opinions of executives about millennials and vice versa, and much more. The survey identified a number of solutions to alleviate the preparedness problem and found high levels of agreement among different stakeholders on those solutions. But the study also highlights a lack of consensus in how stakeholders actually define preparedness and views vary on which skills are needed.

The role of higher education and the curricular options that can anchor new models of learning were among the most attractive options identified. In particular, greater fusion between theoretical and applied learning, along with greater collaboration and integration with corporations and other employers, were deemed most promising by research participants.
