The face and the makeup of the U.S. workforce is changing. Today, one in three employees is a Millennial, ages 18 to 34—and they are having a dramatic influence on the workplace.
There are more than 53 million Millennials in the workforce nationwide, filling the majority of marketing and communications jobs in leading Washington, D.C. businesses as well as in organizations throughout the country. And, what’s even more interesting is these entry-level and next-generation employees are working alongside the second largest group of employees—Baby Boomers. As the more senior workers approach retirement, Millennials are preparing to manage employees, make decisions and eventually run companies.
