Millennials & Management: The Essential Guide to Making It Work at Work

Lee Caraher. Bibliomotion, $24.95 (192p) ISBN 978-1-6295-6027-4
Every age group brings its own distinct set of ethics and values into the workplace. But what happens when the entering generation’s belief system clashes with that of previous generations? Caraher, a communications specialist, offers up a set of practices that can help the three disparate generations comprising the American workplace today—namely boomers, gen-Xers, and millennials—work together more harmoniously. She addresses a key issue here: the (apparently) fundamental difference in attitude between millennials and their elders. To that end, Caraher offers a primer to the “millennial mind-set.” Along the way, she debunks some of the attributes commonly ascribed to this group, including entitlement, laziness, and lack of productivity. This manual places particular emphasis on the most effective ways of motivating millennial hires, but takes care to sample each generation’s insights on important workplace issues, such as clarity, transparency, and hierarchy. Each chapter closes with a concise list of “dos and don’ts” for both managers and employees which serves as a useful and quick reference tool. Caraher’s compilation of best practices will help organizations make the most of a cross-generational workforce and build a more productive and positive workplace. (Oct.)
