Experience is considered less valuable than people with more specialized skills.

Donny Walford, founder of a networking company for businesswomen, & # 39; Behind Closed Doors & # 39 ;, said that people born between the mid-1980s to mid-90s were much more economical at work than people who were in the 60s 80 are born.

& # 39; They take more risks because they don't even think that failure has failed – if something doesn't work, they just try something else, & # 39; Walford said to the Courier mail.

& # 39; They are very optimistic & # 39 ;, she said.

Those aged between the early 20s and the late 30s turned out to have a higher level of education, with many having more than one university degree.

Walford said the younger generations would be good leaders because they enjoyed a team culture and were more in touch with the emotional side of business.

Millennials are more likely to evict themselves from their comfort zones and attend mentor and networking sessions.
