This infographic represents a survey on workplace perceptions of millennials. HR professionals are viewing millennials totally opposite of how they view themselves. So how are millennials rising above what is being perceived and not always true? Read on and you’ll see that millennials actually possess the values and skills that we want to add to our teams.

This recent article states: Representing over 80 million Americans, the millennial generation is quickly gaining traction in the professional world. Sharp, savvy, and digitally dynamic, millennials are poised to revolutionize business communications. By understanding their values and communication style, you can leverage the tremendous power of the millennial worker for your organization.

Here are salient points about this emerging group of potential leaders:

1. They’re honest: They want a foundation of trust with their colleagues and managers.

2. They want feedback: Constructive criticism engages them and retains interest in their jobs.

3. Complacent? No. Millennials do not want to sit and wait forever to move to their next position. They have an entrepreneurial spirit and want to take on more responsibility.

4. Confident? Yes. They aren’t afraid to build relationships with their managers and beyond. Communication to these higher ups is important to them especially when it involves a major decision or project.

5. They share success: Millennials typically want to share successes as a team and won’t withhold information for personal gain.

“Business leaders refer to communications, teamwork, and etiquette as “the soft skills.” They are not the softskills if they can get you fired. They are the foundation of business relationships, and nothing happens in business until there is a relationship. This book fills an important gap in the education of new and seasoned professionals.”
