By Audrey Roth
Stereotypes of Millennials are in no shortage, ranging from their brief attention spans to a need for incessant affirmation—but they aren’t all bad. Millennials are also assumed to be tech-savvy, interested in work that has value, and curious about the world around them. This curiosity may be driving an increased interest in corporate relocation.
According PricewaterhouseCoopers’ report Millennials at Work: Reshaping the Workplace, 70 percent of Millennials want or expect an overseas assignment at some point in their careers. And with 1.8 billion Millennials globally predicted to make up 50 percent of the workforce by 2020, employers need to ensure their relocation programs are attractive to this generation.

What organizations need to consider when leveraging a local-based approach to long-term international assignments.
By Lisa Johnson
As companies continue to expand and grow globally, so do the needs of their international assignments.
