The 2016 Deloitte Millennial Survey of almost 8,000 full-time employees in mostly large companies, likely well-educated, from 30 developed and emerging countries, found that their personal values were the main influence on making decisions at work (including 64% of senior managers), rather than making a profit for their employer or personally becoming rich or famous. However, in choosing an employer, pay and financial benefits are most important to the respondents, followed by opportunity for work-life balance. They prefer a creative and inclusive work culture over an authoritarian rules-based approach.
