Finally, someone who isn't saying adaption to Gen Y is to surrender.
I respect Linda Duxbury and find she has good things to say, but her approach to Gen Y's sense of entitlement and lack of understanding of business culture seems to be business must adapt to them. That's right Boomers and Gen X and even some Silent Gens who are still workingâ€”we all must dismantle decades of business acumen because Todd wants to show up for work "whenever" wearing jeans and a Fall Out Boy T-shirt and is gonna take 3 months off to ski in Colorado and are you cool with that?
One issue I do have is "Rather than completely brush them off... keep them in the loop through blast e-newsletters." First, there are privacy issues here. Secondly, you are giving ground. Parents have no role in their children's hiring process, period. Giving them an inch invites them to open the door wider. Much like you recommend for their entitled kids, you have to take a hard line and lay down your expectations.
Otherwise, an excellent article.
