Millennials are the largest generation in the workforce, having recently passed both Baby Boomers and Gen Xers. By 202, Millennials will make up 46% of the entire workforce. However, unlike previous generations, Millennials continue to mystify HR departments and managers at all levels of the corporate hierarchy.
