“Read this book if you want to get beyond stereotypes and understand Millennials and the work place. Lauren Rikleen provides terrific practical insight that will help employers harness the talent of Millennials in the workplace. Whether you are a parent, an educator, or an employer, this book will help you understand the dynamics of the millennial generation. Buy the book. Give it to your friends. They will thank you.”
– David P. Angel, President, Clark University
“Rikleen takes on the mythology that Millennials are soft and entitled and turns it on its head. With original research and a wealth of fresh and powerful voices, she draws a more complex and nuanced portrait of a young, tech-savvy, highly skilled and dedicated generation with a different definition of success. That they put more stock in efficiency, quality and performance, rather than in the ‘tried and true' long hours of face time in the office is, Rikleen points out, something not to be denigrated, but celebrated. Essential Reading for employers, employees, and parents of any generation.”
– Brigid Schulte, author of the New York Times bestselling Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play when No One has the Time, long-time, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and director of the Better Life Lab at New America
