Millennials are the first age cohort that grew up in an internationally connected world. Globalisation has seen the emergence of a global culture that affects national cultures. Millennials will soon represent the majority of the global workforce. Therefore, understanding their job expectations in light of cultural globalisation is crucial for organisations to attract and retain them as employees. This study explores whether millennials’ job expectations depend on their cultural background. A questionnaire-based research project was conducted in Poland, Germany and Chile, countries characterised by significant cultural differences according to a six-dimension model developed by Geert Hofstede. The research compared the job-related expectations of the young age cohort that may be culture-dependent and independent. The findings and recommendations can be useful for leaders of organisations to create a millennial attractive work environment and for further academic research.
