In the digital era where communication is easily available 24/7, the lines can become blurred between work time and personal time. The traditional 9-5 is increasingly a rare occurrence. Millennials recognize this evolution and want greater flexibility when it comes to creating a balanced schedule. According to a recent survey
by PwC, 95 percent of millennial respondents said work-life balance was important to them when evaluating job prospects. Whether it is offering options to work from home, generous vacation benefits or modified schedules that focus on productivity rather than meeting a certain number of hours worked, finance departments that will succeed in attracting millennial CPAs are ones that are willing to evolve when it comes to defining a typical work day.
