Ranking of most important things in life for Millennials in France March 2017

Ranking of most important things in life for the Generation Y in France in March 2017

Ranking of most important things in life for Millennials in France March 2017 In March 2017, a survey conducted by Cegos revealed that more than 70 percent of French Millennials considered that family life was the most important thing in life. Thus, only three percent of young French adults considered that working gave a meaning to life. It appears that compared to older generations, Millennials tend to have a more distant relationship with work.
The aspirations of Millennials

The Millennials, also known as Generation Y, are the population born between 1980 and 1999. Those digital natives, who are almost always connected, appear to be concerned by their financial future but favor family life. According to the source, money was mentioned as the most important thing in life by six percent of responding French Millennials. In comparison, after family time (71 percent of respondents), leisure activities like hobbies and free time were respectively quoted by four and five percent of respondents. Younger generation seem to be satisfied with their professional life but work is more likely a way to earn money. In 2017, only 38 percent of surveyed French Millennials declared that they have chosen their current company because of its carrier opportunities, while 57 percent of them mentioned the remuneration as a key factor of their choice.

Youth employment in France

In 2015, France had one of the highest number of citizens aged from 25 to 29 years in Europe and a youth employment rate that reached almost 24 percent that year. In 2019, only Greece, Spain and Italy had a higher youth employment rate than France in Europe. Young adults often have to live together with their parents because of the financial cost of housing and living in the country. In 2018, the share of underemployment for individuals aged 15 to 24 years reached 10.9 percent.
