Don’t Panic: Five Ways Millennials Are Going to Improve Your Workplace

People often ask me about millennials and the impact they’re going to have on the workplace. It makes sense, given that I work in an industry that skews younger than average and I’m known to have a keen interest in talent management. So I’ll tell you what I tell them: If you’re anxious about the impending “takeover” by this new generation—they’ll account for three of four workers globally by 2025—don’t be. Millennials are already reshaping the workplace in significant ways, and in my view it’s all for the good.

Crash the Gates: The New Route to Success for Graduates and Everyone Else

The career path many of us grew up with—find a big company, get your foot in the door, play by the rules, work long and hard, climb patiently up the ladders, and make nice with all the gatekeepers—is crumbling. So why should graduates, or anyone else, waste time and energy following it? Busting economies and booming tech innovations are breaking up the old systems and opening the way for new ones. What’s the point of loading up on debt and sweating your way through the well-worn rut of college when more dynamic and creative approaches can produce better outcomes faster? Fellowships, apprenticeships, gap years, travel, and even straight-up dropping out to hack can be great routes to success.
