HOT & TRENDING

PROTEST? MILLENNIALS DO IT ONLINE
Just 4% of young people join in outdoors demonstrations. Millennials prefer to protest online sharing articles and opinions through social media. They are called the "polite generation". However, their new way of communication is more effective than ever. Do you remember the Ice Bucket Challenge?! It raised $115 million in just a few weeks to help with the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) disease. 

 

MINIMAL-LENNIALS
Declutter: to remove things you don't need from a place in order to make it more pleasant and more useful. This is the new trend taking over among millennials, which is Minimalism. But why it has become so popular? Mobility, the sharing economy and environmental concerns are few of the many reasons behind this movement.

TIPS & TRICKS

KEEP CALM AND CHANGE THOSE CLICHES
Millennials are more than often criticised for being Millennials. There are more than a couple of stereotypes they have to face on a daily basis, especially in the workspace. "Entitled, lazy, technology-dependent" each Millennial had to deal with these adjectives at least once in his life. Thankfully there are trainings and tricks in order to excel at work!

 

NEVER TOO EARLY TO SAVE SOME MONEY!
Wall Street projections advise Millennials to start to save for retirement as soon as possible. In some cases they will need to save twice as much as they were saving before to make up the difference. But how to start saving? This article shows different advice based on five different Millennial savers.

"FINDING GOD" STARRING MILLENNIALS

"Spiritual but not religious" is becoming the new slogan. Millennials still believe in a "higher power" which makes them part of a bigger picture. Nevertheless, more and more adults are putting religion aside. Thus, why religious disaffiliation is growing into a trend? It might be the new culture: millennials are often defined as the most mobile generation to date, young and unsettled, seeking for individualism trying to shape their own universe by themselves and reluctant towards rules and dogmas. 
However, key spiritual figures like Pope Francis are having a positive impact amongst young adults. Authenticity and vulnerability are the values that can change this generation's minds and a Pope paying his hotel bill in person and personally calling victims of violence is the fresh take millennials were waiting for. Maybe institutions are perceived as being too old, maybe there should be an upgrade in one of the most traditional and conservative spheres: religion.

The key facts about Millennials that are always noticed:
1. They generally have an idealistic goal they want to accomplish or contribute to
2. They are very relationship based. If they have a strong relationship with the people they work with, and the company they work for, they will stay at those jobs even if it offers less pay and other benefits. While some from other generations might not appreciate this, they have been taught (and believe) that collaboration and innovation produces better results than just following the company standards. Businesses need to catch onto this if they ever want to keep Millennials engaged as employees.
