Are Millennials the Most Misunderstood Generation of our Time?

Millennials are causing quite a stir in the workforce, with managers and business owners complaining that Generation Y are entitled, selfish, difficult to engage and manage.

With Millennials set to make up over two thirds of the Australian workforce by 2025, the issue of “How to manage your Millennial productivity virus” is not going away any time soon; Gen Y and Z are our future leaders.

Now with newfound insight into the so called “Me me me” generation and qualitative data specific to the Australian workplace Emily Jaksch, in her ground-breaking eBook dispels many of the Millennial Myths we’ve all believed:

  • Millennials are unreliable job hoppers
  • Millennials are seeking more life than work, in their work/life balance
  • Millennials are lazy, immature and most are still living at home with their parents
  • Millennials are a bunch of “kidults” who are 5 years behind other generations in terms of work/life experience
  • And much much more!

Everything you think you know about Millennials is wrong. It’s time to change the dialogue and with Emily’s guidance build the next generation of Millennial leaders.
