2020 Deloitte Millennial Survey

304 Millennial interviews conducted in South Africa

In late 2019, for its ninth annual Millennial Survey, Deloitte Global surveyed 18.4k millennial and Gen Z respondents across 43 countries, including 509 respondents from South Africa, to understand their views on a variety of topics—from their actions to make a positive impact in the world; to what they are looking for in jobs and employers; to the role of business in society; to the issues of mental health and stress; and more.

In early 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic continued to unfold around the world, Deloitte fielded an additional survey of 9,100 respondents across 13 countries to supplement the original survey findings with insights about:

  • How it is impacting them, their jobs/workplaces, and their views on businesses and governments; and
  • The long-term implications the pandemic may have.
