Main Article Content
Twenty-two variables were identified and selected by millennial students as the most important factors contributing to the millennial employeeâ€™s ideal workplace environment. These students were attending a small, southern university School of Business in the United States. On a 5-point Ranking Scale, fifty-two college students responded to a student-designed survey ranking the importance of twenty-two workplace environment variables. It was determined that motivation by â€œbeing involved in the companyâ€™s decisionsâ€ and â€œworking with positive-like-minded peopleâ€ were the two most important factors. These were followed by â€œhaving modern equipmentâ€ and â€œliking the company I work forâ€. The most significant factors impacting job position selection are â€œgreat working conditions including good equipment, good work environment and low stressâ€.
