Of the millennials, 54% consider it important to very important if they can determine their own working hours in a new job.
Almost the same percentage of respondents (born between 1980 and 2000) prefer more flexibility and to a lesser extent social security in their work. This is the conclusion of research among a thousand millennials by research agency Motivaction commissioned by meal delivery company Deliveroo Nederland.
Flexibility is higher on the agenda when choosing a side job than a full-time job when respondents are asked about their preferences. When choosing a side job, millennials consider proximity to the location (46%), good earnings (46%), fun and varied work (35%) and flexible work schedule (33%) the most important when choosing an ideal job the merits and a good balance between work and private life are higher on the agenda.
31% of all respondents believe that technology has a positive influence on work. It is striking that significantly more working millenials think that technology has a positive impact on work than the people who have never worked (57% of people who work part-time versus 18% of people who have never worked).
