In part 1 of our series on Millennials in the workplace, Alison Guillaume shared some important career tips for employees who are just starting their careers. In this next post, Kaila Orn offers her insights about what Millennials need from their GenX and Baby Boomer colleagues to thrive in the work environment:
Millennials. The generation of lazy, narcissistic, self-righteous, participation trophy-toters. As one of those very Millennials, I can attest to the bad rep that we have. Gen X co-workers don’t know how to work with us and our Baby Boomer bosses struggle to understand how to connect with us. As of 2015, Pew Research Center declared that Millennials now occupy the largest share of workers in the American workforce. We realize there’s often a disconnection between the generations in the workplace so I’d like to help shed some light on what we need in order to thrive.
