If one were to believe media depictions, Millennials are lazy, entitled, way-too-sensitive kids, who expect plum management positions straight out of college and have no interest in “paying their dues” at work.

When engaged with their work and their employer, Millennials are driven, passionate, and eager to take on new challenges.
So … how do you engage them?
