A recent post on Entreprenuer.com about Millenials is another in the string of generalizations about a group of people that are not founded in any data.
Rigid office hours? Strict dress codes? Meetings to talk about meetings? The “legacy-effect” of traditions, language that sounds like corporate-speak and outdated practices are all hard for us to stomach. If the only reason why something is done a certain way at work is that “it’s always been done that way,” you'll lose us. We are a generation of hackers, tinkerers and shortcut takers. We want the best, most efficient and logical approach. Does your company have rules and policies “just because"?1.
This post could easily have been titled "4 things that most people feel." I am not aware of any convincing evidence (data) that supports these contrasts drawn between Millenials and older generations.
