Aslop goes on to make some perceptive observations about how Millennials' proclivities are playing out in the workplace (jumping from job-to-job, expecting instant promotions, sending brash emails to the CEO) as well as possible sources of their elevated self-esteem (coddling by the boomers who are now their bosses). But in the end, what the Millennials want doesn't seem all that outrageous and in fact it's a bit sad that extending a few basic courtesies is viewed as "adapting" to unreasonable expectations. Tips for bosses include:
- Show new hires how their work makes a difference and why it's of value to the company.
- Listen to young employees' opinions, and give them some say in decisions.
- Detail the career opportunities available to millennials if they'll just stick around awhile.
