In 2019, PHCPPros launched the "Millennials On The Move" honorary listing in Plumbing Engineer, PHC News and The Wholesaler magazines. The listing was created to shed light on what is now the largest generation in the workforce, while also launching bigger conversations on topics such as industry recruiting, talent retention, leadership development and more. This year, PHCPPros is expanding that conversation outside of our industry with a convenient roundup of the millennial news, stories, and trends that catch our attention each month.
You'll find that a majority of this month's conversation around millennials centered on personal finance. We read multiple sources reporting that many millennials are saving more money than they were before COVID-19 hit. (It's likely this cohort of millennials weren't affected by pandemic pay cuts or unemployment, though.) Additionally, multiple sources have reported wine consumption is up among millennials, but the wine industry has yet to catch up with its marketing efforts. Finally, keep reading to find out what one millennial therapist says is the top "simple yet profound" gift to give others this year!
