About This Interview

As employers search for the best and brightest workers in this economy, they question whether Generation Y will acclimate or alter the workplace as older generations know it.  Neil joins Keeping Up with Gen Y to explain the change young people will bring to offices across the country, and why it’s a good thing. Today’s show is the first of a two-part episode.  In this first part, Neil elaborates on key points about Millennials in the workplace, including the core traits that Millennials bring to the job, and how Boomer and Gen X employers can harness those traits to benefit their businesses.
