4 Millennial Myths and a Very Hard Truth [Podcast]

I haven’t done a great job of keeping the podcast shared here because I’m now publishing about once a week, and I typically have time to publish about once a week on this blog as well. If you have missed any episodes, like how to forecast your workforce planning (episode 25 interview with H&R Block’s head of hiring) or how to get the most out of an HR conference (episode 26 interview with Donna Quinney of Ignite), be sure to subscribe to the feed by plugging this link into iTunes or searching for the show in iTunes, Stitcher, or your favorite podcast app! 

If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know that this “Millennial thing” gets me. It gets me good. I can’t stand to be lumped into a giant demographic with tons of red flags and stereotypes. That’s why I recorded this podcast with Kristina Minyard (fellow Millennial) to talk about the four myths we see in how people expect this generation to want to be treated. It’s fun, entertaining, and a great opportunity to hear from some actual people that SHOULD know what’s going on, not another “generational expert” that’s milking your fears of what generations want for money.

See? It gets me. :-)

kristina minyardMillennials are entitled–they think they need a trophy. Millennials need constant praise and feedback. Millennials can’t survive without technology.

These kinds of conversations happen every day at employers globally. But are they true? Do they reflect reality? In this episode, Ben talks with Kristina Minyard (a fellow Millennial) about some of these and other comments that are directed at Millennials around the world

It’s hard to get through a day today without hearing something about Millennials in the workplace. Recently this demographic group surpassed all others, taking the slot as the largest population in the workplace. In this entertaining and insightful episode, listeners will not only change how they think about Millennials and generations in the workplace–they will also rethink some of the marketing messages they see targeting this group on a daily basis.

If you enjoy the episode, be sure to give us a rating on iTunes! We appreciate it.
