Generation GAP – news, trends and research

27 June 2018

How does Generation Y see life in 2086?

Nearly nine in 10 Millennials (88 percent) say people now in their 20s and 30s will need to work much longer than previous generations did to retire with the same level of financial security. Even if they do work for a longer period, 79 percent believe that by the time they reach 80 years old, comfortable retirement will be a thing of the past. At least 70 percent say that’s because it’s impossible to save as much money each year as prescribed by current retirement planning tools.

Millennials are at the center of changes being driven by technology and the employee/ employer social contract. Many entered the workforce during the economic downturn and struggled to launch their careers.The old assumptions about education, work and retirement no longer apply for themselves and their children.

Almost two-thirds of respondents agree that in the future "traditional full-time employment will largely disappear and freelancers  will make up 75 percent or more of the U.S. workforce". Most Millennials (72 percent) report being nervous that employers will stop providing healthcare and retirement benefits.

People will need to learn to work with and adapt to robots and artificial intelligence to do the job. Millennials are slowly finding their economic footing.

Most Millennials (63 percent) reported being extremely/ somewhat nervous that they are heading in a direction in which wealth will be calculated based on one"s personal data digital possessions, and other forms of value - not just money and "traditional investments". And 71 percent say it's likely that the next generation will live in a world without cash.
