An interesting article (based on a US survey) upending the stereotypes about what millennials value from an employer. Has this been your experience?
A fantastic article from a Boomer in a Millennial's world. This very same wisdom was shared with me today by another Boomer who has spend his career in digital advertising. He considers himself a student of digital, even now.

Resonate International is researching the impact on organisations of cross generational teams, specifically the challenges of large numbers of Millennials joining the workforce. What stories can you share? Have you experienced the "helicopter mom" calling the HR department to complain about her son's performance review? Or the new hire who requests a 6 month sabbatical after 6 months on the job? Or the spark of creativity or new perspective from a Millennial that has charged up your team? *As an organisation, how are you preparing your managers to lead teams that might contain Baby Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials?
If your company isn't "sexy", a la Facebook, how will you attract and retain the new generation of workers? Please share your stories, challenges and victories (no identifying info please).
