    Revealing advice on the new generation of workers

    The baby boomers' children have grown up to be master multitaskers, able to send text messages, download music, watch TV and study at the same time. They're entering the labor pool in droves, and they expect their jobs to be not only stimulating and well-paying but also (if you can imagine it) fun. Who are these extraordinary people with their radical work ethic? They are the "Millennials," the second wave of baby boomer children who are questioning the way their parents do business. Dr. Joanne G. Sujansky and Dr. Jan Ferri-Reed caution managers that they must cater to millennials or risk losing billions in employee turnover and unachieved productivity. The authors explain how the members of this over-nurtured, well-educated, technology-savvy generation differ from their parents and grandparents. They also explain how to make workplaces hip enough to attract and retain this new talent. getAbstract suggests this insightful read to baby boomers who are struggling to manage these bright, energetic, puzzling and sometimes exasperating employees.
