With one Google search you can find boatloads of information about the rise of Millennials and how they will affect the traditional work environment as we know it. While there are some obvious positive benefits about hiring Millennials, there also are significant misconceptions and complaints from employers about the next generation.
Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s establish what defines a Millennial. A Millennial is somewhere between 18-34 years of age. This is one of the largest generations, surpassing both Gen Xers and the Baby Boomers. There are nearly 80 million Millennials, according to MillennialMarketing, meaning they make up about 25 percent of the US population.
