What's with kids these days? As employees go, they're certainly nothing like previous generations. They don't expect or want life-time employment -- no company men are they -- nor, according to a story in the New York Times do they care so much about salary, at least not in the traditional sense. Young professional workers care more about being productive and engaged by their jobs than they do about salary. It's said to be a sort of game of quid pro quo -- you give me something to be inspired and engaged by, and I'll give you lots of hard work back. Payment for loyalty has no room in this modern design.

Have you seen this transition in your company? How do you incentivize your workers?
