Millennials in the workplace? They’re part of the new reality that every employer is going to have to deal with. That’s not only because labor shortages are rampant across many industries and in many communities. And there’s the reality of millennials getting older: They’re simply just entering the workplace in greater and greater numbers every year. In fact, by 2020, they’re going to be the largest generation in America. Despite everyone being aware of this new generation in the workplace, most of the employers are still struggling with finding ways to engage millennials.
