But career development programs and paid time off are other benefits many millennials seek. “Make sure you have modern benefits like PTO instead of vacation and sick time," says Combs. "Let them choose how they use their time off.”

The option for a nontraditional schedule is another perk that can set a company apart from the competition when it comes to hiring.
