High-achieving millennials expect to stay with their current employer for five years, regardless of circumstance, salary or responsibilities, according to an FTI Consulting study1. Given that millennials will account for 50% of the global workforce by 2020, what can be done to keep your company’s most talented young employees engaged and committed?

A better understanding of high-achieving millennials is crucial because of the potential impact they have on an organisation’s bottom line.
