b2ap3_thumbnail_Millennials-at-work.jpg

 

Millennials are set to form more than 50% of the global workforce by 2020, making it more important than ever for employers to adapt their approach to attract and retain the best talent, without inadvertently alienating older colleagues. 

Also known as “Generation Y”, Millennials are the youngest members of today’s workforce and are defined as being born between 1980 and the year 2000. Due to major advancements in technology, millennials have been brought up very differently to their Generation X and Baby Boomer predecessors and as a result are having a huge impact on the future of workplace design, culture and management style.

Did you know that the amount of coffee you drink could have something to do with your DNA? A new study by Edinburgh University has identified that your genes can have a direct impact on your coffee consumption.

According to the new report, people who possess a specific gene called PDSS2 usually drink less coffee than those without the gene. This is because the gene reduces the ability for the body to breakdown caffeine and therefore means you need less coffee to get your caffeine boost.

Researchers surveyed over 1200 people in Italy and found that those without the gene PDSS2 drank an average of one extra cup of coffee per day.

These results back up previous studies which show links between genetics and coffee consumption, although larger studies are needed to confirm the findings.

 

So next time you feel a craving for coffee it could be down to your DNA!
