Ahhh the Millennials… friends or foes?
Does age really matter?
It doesn’t have to matter when we embrace our differences in the workplace. You can use those differences to your advantage. And you won’t be sorry you did.
Jim Haudan from Root® Inc. discusses this topic in his recent article Boomers and Xers Are So Last Year – Millennials Are Where It’s At. We are actually more alike than we are different from our younger coworkers. Millennials are looking for collaboration and the opportunity to learn from their mentors.

The article discuses ways to embrace them, lead them, and teaches you how to think like a Millennial so you can get the most from their contributions.

Those whippersnappers are here to stay.
