You have no doubt heard all of the complaints regarding millennial.  A quick search on the internet will reveal article after article about the demanding, difficult and unqualified nature of millennials.

However, as a recruiting manager or owner of a business, it is important to take such accusations with a grain of salt. As a matter of fact, millennials possess certain traits that could actually do amazing things for your organization.

Millennials do not view work the same as other generations. For example, they are reportedly opposed to cubicles and designated workspaces, nor do they value titles. In addition, failure does not seem to bother millennials at all.

The things that interest this new generation include self-expression, individuality and authenticity. These are not things that will be rewarded in a break room or corporate boardroom. Instead of fitting into a company culture, millennials would rather the company culture change shape to fit them.
