Millennial Survey

The Chico Chamber's Young Professionals Organization recognizes a need to survey our millennial population for input on how this generation of “technology natives” is driving change in the business world and in our workplaces.  We did so with our 2015 Millennial Survey aimed for local Chico millennials to take and we received a total of 333 responses.  Click here to view our slide show presented at the 2015 YPO E.P.I.C. Event.
