Generation Y – or the so-called millenials, people born between 1980 and 2000 – will make up fully 50% of the workforce by 2020. For millenials, learning and professional development opportunities, as well as a healthy work/life balance, are bigger priorities than how much money they earn, according to a new international survey by PwC.
