Saw this 60 Min. again recently. We have a "millennial" here in our office. This is very accurate of this particular person. This person drives me crazy and not in a sexual way. I just want to scream at this person... "If you go out of town for the weekend to party and show up on Monday dead tired, do not both coming to work. If you go out on Monday or other week day and come in late to the office, hung over, tired and unfocused do not bother." This persons additude and out look is just different. I guess I have become the square I once despised. Sorry just had to vent The Link "Some of the others are absolutely incorrigible. It's their way or the highway." "You do have to speak to them a little bit like a therapist on television might speak to a patient," Salzman says, laughing. "You can't be harsh. You cannot tell them you're disappointed in them. You can't really ask them to live and breathe the company. Because they're living and breathing themselves and that keeps them very busy." "These young people will tell you what time their yoga class is and the day's work will be organized around the fact that they have this commitment. So you actually envy them. How wonderful it is to be young and have your priorities so clear. Flipside of it is how awful it is to be managing the extension, sort of, of the teenage babysitting pool," Salzman tells Safer. "It's a perfect storm we have created to put these people in a position where they suddenly have to perform as professionals and haven't been trained," Crane says. Basic training, like how to eat with a knife and fork, or indeed how to work. Today, fewer and fewer middle class kids hold summer jobs because mowing lawns does not get you into Harvard. "They have climbed Mount Everest. They've been down to Machu Picchu to help excavate it. But they've never punched a time clock. They have no idea what it's like to actually be in an office at nine o'clock, with people handing them work," Crane says. She maintains that while this generation has extraordinary technical skills, childhoods filled with trophies and adulation didn't prepare them for the cold realities of work. "You now have a generation coming into the workplace that has grown up with the expectation that they will automatically win, and they'll always be rewarded, even for just showing up," Crane says.
