Dog-friendly offices more appealing to Millennials than play rooms

Only 33 percent of U.S. workers believe that being a manager has the potential to advance their career with more than a third (37 percent) of workers and 44 percent of Millennials preferring to jump ship if the right opportunity arises. Addison Group’s second annual generational workplace survey found that regardless of generation, healthcare benefits was most important benefit (70%), followed by a high salary (59%). However, Millennials would choose one company over another that paid a higher salary if free meals, beverages and snacks (40%) and tuition reimbursement (36%) were provided. Millennials also rank having a dog-friendly office (14%) higher than a napping room, concierge services and a play room with ping pong, billiards and video games. They also value the social aspect of the workplace highly, with nearly twice as many in this generation (15%) marking work-sponsored happy hours as important compared to Baby Boomers (8%).
