Future Friday: Of course Millennials are the future! They are also the present!

I read an article with the title Millennials are solving today’s workplace problems. Given that Millennials currently make up 50% of the workforce, and by 2030 will be 75%, my reaction to this title was “Duh”. They should be solving workplace problems. I think every new generation of workers has that potential. We need to get over the “Millennials are hopeless” attitude and recognize the strengths they bring to the table. Many are already in leadership positions. Companies need to stop treating them as mindless workers.
The article, written by futurist Cheryl Cran, is actually a good one, with advice on using the talent pool available. I suggest you read it. But let’s stop being amazed that Millennials are the future, they are actually the present!
