The Millennial generation has been widely characterized as the “me” generation—self-centered, lazy, and demanding--a reputation that is unbalanced and to some degree mud slinging by the predominant baby boomers, who upon close examination, haven’t done so well. One thing is clear, the Millennials will soon be in control of careers and the workplace, and they will change.
Millennials are part of the quiet progression toward significant, scalable, and lasting change, and they are learning that they can do extraordinary things when they mobilize their peers ... Millennials are trying to incorporate issues, causes and beliefs they are passionate about into busy, complex, multifaceted lives. Millennials are looking for sustainable commitments that can engage them and allow them to contribute to society.”
One of the characteristics of millennials, besides the fact that they are masters of digital communication, is that they are primed to do well by doing good. Almost 70 percent say that giving back and being civically engaged are their highest priorities.
According to Dan Schawbel, author of Promote Yourself: The New Rules for Career Success, and an expert on the Millennials, says “Millennials have a different view of how work should be done and what a company’s role should be in society. They want companies to give back to the community, to eliminate the traditional 9 to 5 workday, collaboration instead of isolation, and to create a organization fabricated by social media. Millennials, relative to older generations, are all about giving back to communities that align with their core values. They want to make a difference in a world.”
http://m.psychologytoday.com/blog/wired ... -workplaceA Millennial Branding study reported that 45% of Millennials will choose workplace flexibility over pay; 72% want to have a job where they can have an impact; and due to the impact of the recent recession and current high unemployment rate for young people, need economic security (according to a recent AP analysis, more than 53 percent of recent college grads are unemployed or underemployed). An MTV survey reported Millennials want more flexible hours and ability to work remotely with technology; they want to set their own hours and dress how they want; and they believe they can teach older workers and their bosses a thing or two.
Proclamation, regardless of how one feels, with refused to traditional roles as well as workplace roles are changing.
In that light, it has become irrelevant to the younger generation. The more it's pounded. The more they will mobilize with social networks. They don't want "deprogress" all the progress they see as a positive change in the world.
So ya, pounding the pulpit more will cause the rise and even bigger rise then what we hope to create.
Their children are showing the same the same progression along those lines.
It shows with willing to take less pay with more flexibility for causes and family they are passionate about. And to not let people correlate them into values they don't share.
