Within the study, it also highlighted that 60% of CFOs in Australia believe that the top quality that millennials bring to the table is an increased emphasis on collaboration and transparency. Flexibility (44%), a greater focus on teamwork and problem solving (43%) and more mentoring programs (38%) are also essential workplace qualities that millennials contribute.
