Millennials' desire for flexibility extends to all areas of their lives – from working to shopping. Consider how you can give them options that work for them. In communication, this could mean leveraging Messenger and WhatsApp so that they can reach you when it's most convenient for them. In fulfillment, this could mean enabling in-store pickup, allowing same-day delivery or offering subscription-based services.

Look to millennials for what's to come

Millennials are leaders of change across work and life, and businesses are responding. See how forward-thinking companies such as Walmart and Virgin Atlantic, and even non-profits, such as WWF, are becoming more millennial-friendly by embracing next-gen tools at work. And consider how new technologies – from automation to augmented reality – can enhance customer journeys, just as they're already enhancing workers' productivity.
