Breaking the perception about millennials he shared that it’s a myth that millennials change jobs very quickly. “They do not change jobs frequently and they work similarly in the same way the previous generation did.” The only change is their approach towards the job. Millennials today want to align with the vision and mission of the company and evaluate their position accordingly.
He emphasized the fact that one needs to change the thought that millennials are lazy, they are not lazy, but they work differently. They want to have open dialogues and are eager to understand the value creation and connected to the front line.
