Survey: Boomers Vs Millennials in the Office

Millennials are more bothered by dirty offices than their older coworkers! In fact, they hate unclean work environments so much they might even quit if the office gets too dirty. A new national survey of more than 300 American workers ages 25-55 has found that baby boomers and millennials have very different opinions when it comes to office cleanliness and temperature settings. Check out the results below from a recent survey on boomers vs millennials in the office conducted by OpenWorks Facility Services.Less Pay for Better ConditionsMore than half (55 percent) of millennials say they would consider taking a little less pay for an office setting at the perfect temperature and cleanliness level.
