Millennials and Generation X put a higher value on workplace diversity than any other generation. This aligns with the results of previous surveys, according to which workplace diversity is among the top three job search criteria for Millennials and Gen Xers, along with salary and schedule flexibility. Millennials are even likely to stay nearly twice as long as their average 2.8-year tenure at a company that fosters diversity, equity and inclusion.
"Millennials and Generation X together account for over two-thirds of today's U.S. labor force. When close to 90% of them say that a company's concrete commitment to workplace diversity affects their decision to work there, it means that employers who deploy DEI programs can have a competitive edge in the war for talent."
