Firms, especially smaller ones, need to be more creative in their benefits package to attract top millennial talent. Merely offering 401k, a firm cellphone and laptop isn’t going to cut it anymore.
The millennial generation encompasses those born anywhere from the early 1980s to the late 1990s and make up the largest portion of the U.S. workforce. Despite being the most educated in comparison to previous generations, they are often stereotyped as entitled, lacking work ethic and job hoppers. The millennial that went to law school and passed the bar doesn’t escape this stereotype either. The truth is that the millennial lawyer is accomplished and has high expectations for themselves and their employer.
