Infographic: The truth about millennials in the workplace

They might not be perfect, but no generation is. This graphic reveals that most millennials aren’t as bad as you think. In fact, they can be—gasp!—hardworking and approachable.

Millennials are lazy, entitled job hoppers who only care about texting, right?

Wrong.

In an infographic that hardworking, mature and loyal millennials will probably appreciate, Bentley University shares statistics that prove that most millennials don’t follow the stereotypes with which society has branded them.

For instance, most millennials are not job hoppers. Eighty percent of millennials plan to work for four companies or fewer throughout their careers.

And no, many millennials don’t detest face-to-face communication. Fifty-one percent of Generation Y members prefer to communicate with their colleagues face to face. Only 14 percent prefer texting.

Although some of us millennials believe we deserve more credit, some do give us a bad name. Fifty percent of Generation Y say the reason some people in their generation aren’t prepared for their first jobs is that they have a poor work ethic.

Well, no generation is perfect.
