As millennials increasingly move into management positions, they favor a different way of communicating with their employees, according to a survey released today by executive search firm Korn Ferry International Inc. (NYSE: KFY).
More than half of the professionals surveyed, 55%, said online messaging is the most common way for millennial bosses to communicate with their direct reports, followed by email at 28%. Only 14% said their favored way to communicate is in person, and 3% said via phone.
Millennials were identified as those born between 1981 and 1996.
