How to Manage Millennials
Forget what you've heard.
All those articles that scold Millennials for their supposed entitlement? Forget them. Millennials are great employees. There is no reason to plan to accommodate this nonexistent trait or to break anyone of it.
Meet them halfway.
Young people entering the job market seek employment at companies with values that match theirs. Implementing a thoughtful social mission will help you attract top talent.
Give them the big picture.
Millennials are eager to make an impact, which makes them ideal for start-ups. Let them know exactly how their contribution ties into the big picture by sharing high-level insights and objectives.
Discourage twerking. It just makes the rest of us feel inadequate.
