You’re Probably Wrong About Millennials

Managers routinely complain about their Gen Y employees as entitled, disloyal and lazy – and as a result, conflicts arise. In a study in partnership with American Express for my new book, we found that employees from this generation generally have a positive view of their managers.

I agree, there are a lot of misconceptions about millennial employees. Millennials have more information than ever. They know how to find answers, to think for themselves, realize they have choices, and are not willing to settle.

The millennial employee who is thought of as disloyal, may simply realize they do not have to work at a job they hate (as they have seen their parents do). They are willing to risk and find a job that fulfills them more (perhaps with flex work options). That isn’t being disloyal, that is taking a stand for what they want and not setlling. Why would any company want an employee that hates their job but stays because they are “loyal”. A dissatisfied employee that stays because they are loyal will never perform as well as someone who loves their job.

As with any generational change, new thinking is brought to the table. Forward thinking companies understand this and embrace new thinking instead of what has always been done in the past.
