GUEST BLOG: WHAT MOTIVATES MILLENNIALS?


There’s a great deal of discussion at present about the so-called ‘millennial’ generation, and how they differ from those who are older – especially when it comes to the workplace. Many studies have been published, attempting to demystify millennials and provide insight into how the corporations who employ them can better motivate them and speak to their priorities.  


I will be looking at the issue of generational change in the workplace through the lens of business travel at this year’s Business Travel Show – what do these new business travellers need and want, and what are the ramifications for companies? What kinds of tools and information do they expect to have in their work life? It’s a topic very close to home for me - and I’m sure to many of us - given that my daughter is a millennial who has grown up with data and information at her fingertips.

I’ll also be sharing some insights from the GBTA Global Business Traveler Sentiment Index, released last year and sponsored by American Express, which revealed some interesting differences in attitudes and preferences between millennial business travellers, and those of older generations. Join me at 11.30am on Wednesday 24th February to explore these challenges and opportunities in more depth. 

This post was written by Karen Penney, Vice President & General Manager UK, at American Express Global Corporate Payments & Small Business Services. Meet them at the Business Travel Show in London tomorrow and Thursday - www.businesstravelshow.com.
