Today’s workplace is increasingly populated by the millennial generation. Their different upbringing and exposure to technology has significantly altered their requirements amongst the workplace to be successfully attracted and retained into an organisation. The current makeup of most companies is set around other generations needs and wants, most of which are vastly different due to growing up in different societies and eras. The millennial demographic has been brought up in the revolutionary rise of online and social media and as such obtain specific behavioural traits which need to be understood if organisations are going to utilise them for future success. This study is concerned with identifying what organisations are currently doing to attract and retain this generation and how can it be improved. The findings presented give an insight into millennial requirements and also areas in which organisations need to improve in order to maximise their effectiveness when attracting and retaining millennials. By incorporating millennial requirements into future business strategies the results showed that not only can organisations obtain the top millennial talent but also beat their closest competitors.
