The Trophy Kids Grow Up
IN THIS SUMMARY
The millennial generation – comprised of individuals born between 1980 and 2001 – is shaking up the workplace. A polarizing generation that is both admired and critiqued, millennials are serious about changing work environments to meet their needs. Currently, employers are facing the monumental challenge of integrating the millennials into the workplace with three other generations – Generation Xers, Baby Boomers, and Traditionalists – who have very different attitudes and behaviors.
In The Trophy Kids Grow Up, Ron Alsop seeks to provide colleges, companies, and other organizations with the information needed to understand and reach out to the millennials. Based on surveys and interviews with millennials, parents, professors, college admissions directors, corporate recruiters, and managers, Alsop paints a portrait of the promises and perils of this fascinating generation.
