They are financially focused (prioritizing base salary and tuition reimbursement), require flexibility (more paid time off and the ability to work wherever, whenever) and value customization. Since the job market is becoming increasingly competitive, companies must change their packages to accommodate and appeal to this new generation (see Exhibit 1).
