Much has been said about millennials – roughly defined as those who were born between 1980 and 2000.
It has been said that they’re digital natives – growing up amidst social networks and rapidly evolving technology. It has been said that they crave growth and experiences versus stability. It has been said that they’re empowered, yet entitled – at least in prevailing Western narratives.
In the Philippines, millennials make up one-third of the total population. They’re the ones politicians talk to. The ones marketers try to entice and persuade. The ones companies want to hire (if they haven’t started their own). They are a force to be reckoned with.
This year, the oldest millennials are 36 years old. As they enter their prime years, they’re not just defining his community or his workplace. They’re also starting to take care of a new generation.
