- Millennials and non-millennials alike value trustworthiness the most in a manager, with 59 percent of millennials and 73 percent of non-millennials dubbing it the most important quality.
- Millennials and non-millennials agree that managers are more effective in displaying industry knowledge and experience (42 percent say they are very effective) than they are at mentoring (25 percent say they are very effective) and utilizing all of employees’ talents and abilities at work (23 percent say they are very effective).
- Millennials think leadership is less concerned about them. They also are less optimistic about the benefits of work.
