Who are Millennials?

Millennials are broadly defined as people whose birth years range from the early 1980s to around 2000.


52 hours of work per week

Indian millennials spend more hours at work than their counterparts from the rest of the world, reveals a new survey conducted by ManpowerGroup.

In the survey, over 19,000 millennials from 25 countries were taken into consideration, where India topped the chart with 52 hours of work per week on average. It is more than the Chinese millennials, who work for 48 hours per week. The number is also way more than Australian and British, who average 41 hours per week.

The reasons behind it

Youth from the emerging economies like India, China, Mexico seems to be more positive about their work and future employment. At least 70-80% of millennials surveyed in India said they were optimistic or confident about their prospects, compared with Japan, where only 30-39% of them said the same.

The survey also found that the millennials do not seek for early retirement, instead, they prefer a variety in their careers that includes changing jobs, taking regular breaks than sticking to a single job for life. But that does not mean that they want to work until their death.
