Overview of the Research
SparkVision’s High Achieving Millennial Research Project is capturing the values, characteristics and workplace culture preferences of those born between 1980 – 2000 who are on-point professionally, striving to be better and inspiring those around them. Unlike the commonly accepted negative stereotypes, these are the millennials employers are desperate to get their hands on, but all too often lose once they do.
A High Achieving Millennial (HAM) is someone who maintains high standards, takes responsibility for their mistakes, associates achievement with one’s own competence and is intrinsically motivated. HAMs regularly earn promotions, awards and higher degrees. They undertake extracurricular activities, are recognized by colleagues as proactive self-starters, and often lead a team or company.
Phase IOur initial report captures the High Achieving Millennial's authentic voice through their experience and stories. It explores topics such as perception, perspective, race, culture, and professional values.
