Why Millennials are the most bored at work

Young Millennials (aged 21-24) are almost twice as likely to be bored at work (38%) than Baby Boomers (22%).

According to the recent study by Udemy, employees who are bored are twice as likely to leave or job hop in the next three to six months.

    Oohh! This did make me laugh! In my (albeit limited) experience of working with this age group, the reason they finish tasks quicker is because they do the bare minimum, often skipping essential parts of the task. I do appreciate that this is due to their low boredom threshold, however I would suggest rather than demand shorter hours / more challenging work many young workers should learn to deal with the boredom and take pride in doing their work to a high standard. Of course, this is a huge generalisation. There are many people in the workplace of this age group who are keen to learn and happy to put their head down and work hard. They are real gems!
