dc.description.abstract Understanding the work values of the Lebanese Millennials has become a necessary requirement to retain the young emerging workforce building tomorrow’s professional world, and decrease the immigration rate of the exceptional Lebanese talent. A qualitative study was designed on a sample of 8 Lebanese participants, belonging to the Millennial Generation, to identify the most significant values they hold and look to achieve in terms of their jobs, careers aspirations and workplace behavior. Throughout the study, in-depth interviews were conducted with the participants on duration of 60 to 70 minutes, whereby attitudes, thoughts and beliefs, were collected, assessed and transcribed throughout a set of 20 different questions. The Buchholz framework of values was used as a basis to assess and identify the values of the sample studied. Results generated, showed significant inclination of the Lebanese Millennials towards having Marxist-related beliefs as a top priority followed by the humanistic and organizational belief systems. Hence, Lebanese Millennials were believed to be extremely similar to American Millennials who also place the humanistic belief system as their priority. Lebanese Millennials were also believed to be slightly different than other Arab nationalities given that the latter Millennials were seen to be placing the humanitarian belief system as their most important system. Additionally, they held preferences and beliefs that were universally shared by Millennials across the globe in terms to the substantial need for agility and innovation in today’s workplace.
