Here are 10 things that you need to know about your millennial employees - from their values, preferences, to the way they think about work:

Millennials like to know what's going on. They will ask you questions about overarching business strategy and how their job relates to the overall purpose of the organization.
Members of Generation Y like to know that their job has meaning and purpose. They like to know the "why" behind the business, how the organization helps the world, and make a contribution to society.
The first group of millennials are in their early thirties and will be an important force in the US economy for years to come.
Millennials prefer working in a team environment. Millennial childhood consisted of structure and multiple after-school activities, hobbies, and sports. Encourage your millennial employees to create teams and to work in groups.
They grew up learning about computer and the internet from grade school. Rely on their knowledge of technology and the internet.
If you want to incorporate digital marketing into your firm's strategy, your millennial employees will know how to get you there.

Understanding your peers, whether they are Millennials, Gen Xers, and Baby Boomers will help you in your career. The unique differences of the Millennial generation present an opportunity for you.
