But no matter what you call them, one thing is for certain — their expectations of what work is is definitely different from the ideas of folks my age (Boomers of the world, unite!). I am not saying it is different bad, just different. Actually, different better is probably a more apt description.

To get a better idea of how to most effectively deal with a Millennial worker, I chatted with Burton Goldfield, CEO of TriNet – a company that outsources HR for thousands of small businesses nationwide and as such, has a lot of experience dealing with today’s younger employees. As he explains, “This new generation of employees is more interested in work/life balance than any generation before. They also demand more flexible hours. They don’t want to work from 9-5. They want to work from 10-2, stop and go to the gym, and get back online at 5 to finish the day at 9.”
