Younger workers are more likely to overlook bad reputations of companies, but they won’t stay long if they find the reputation is warranted.

A survey of 578 people conducted by HR media company HRO Today and global recruitment firm Cielo revealed that 73 percent of Millennial and Generation Z workers are willing to leave their current job for a position at a company with a bad reputation, compared to less than 60 percent of Generation X or Baby Boomer employees.
