NO ONE WILL MISS JOBS:

Traumatized by millennials, employers are already desperate to make Generation Z happy (Cassie Werber, April 20, 2016, Quartz)

The research institute of ADP--a business administration group which produces data on work trends and economic health--surveyed 2,400 full-time and part-time employees in different age groups, including millennials, working at companies with over 250 people, to find out how the global workplace had changed. Their resulting study says that millennials have pushed companies to change in key areas, including giving employees more freedom (to work from wherever they want, for example) and autonomy (including to "self-manage," rather than be managed).

But the one big thing the ADP picked out was the search for a sense of fulfilment:

"[T]he need for meaning has certainly evolved over the years," the ADP researchers wrote. "Today, the younger generation of Millennials places more of an emphasis on a search for meaning within their jobs than previous generations, who tended to look for meaning outside of work."
