Millennials can teach us Baby Boomers a thing or two…

 Maybe we could learn from this generation who are looking at engaging with life. I especially like this quote.

"I think it has less to do with lack of conscientiousness—it’s more a recognition that no company is going to bury you when you die," said Scott Ruthfield, 39, who runs Rooster Park, a recruitment firm in Seattle. "You’ve seen your parents go through large companies that don’t take care of them, and you realize that you’re responsible for your own well-being."

We have created companies who are not loyal to their workers. They create secret succession plans, make HR planning decisions about people as if they are excess office square footage, and focus on errors and mistakes rather than what is going well in our employees' work. Yet companies expect loyalty from their employees. Employee satisfaction and engagement must be a two way street. When we respect ourselves and our employees, we can start to create a culture where people are the bottom line and loyalty is a direct outcome.
