Millennials place great importance on diversity and inclusion when choosing a job.A new Weber Shandwick study found distinct differences between millennials and older generations in their experiences and attitudes toward diversity and inclusion at work. Nearly 50% of millennials consider the diversity and inclusion of a workplace an important criterion in their job search compared to only 33% of Gen Xers and 37% of Baby Boomers.Nearly six in 10 of US employees report that they see or hear about some form of discrimination or bias at their workplace, most frequently racial or ethnic in nature.Racial discrimination is closely followed by gender, age and sexual orientation discrimination.According to the study, millennials are significantly more likely than older generations to be attuned to such behaviour at work, and also much more comfortable discussing diversity and inclusion issues at work than their older colleagues.
