Millennials are here to stay, so prepare to make way for them

A few weeks ago I was part of a discussion held at Strathmore Business School on millennials in the work place.
Millennials are people born between 1980 and 2000.
A friend later asked me what is so special about millennials to necessitate the convening of a conference to discuss them.
I hope this article partly answers that question.
Statistics show that millennials make up 58 per cent of the Kenyan work force and it is projected that by 2020 they will make up 50 per cent of the global workforce and 88 per cent by 2030.
Kenya seems to be moving ahead of the projections.
The number of millennials has already exceeded that of the baby boomers and Generation X.
These statistics are the more startling when you consider the fact that by 2014, millennials comprised only 24 per cent of the Kenyan population, yet they dominate the workforce.
