Millennials – broadly categorized as those born between early 1980s and the early 2000s – are steadily overtaking the work sphere. Very soon they will emerge as the largest generation in the workforce. In order to engage and retain this workforce, companies will need to adopt markedly different strategies and approaches than those in the past. “Want it all…want it now”, gives a first-hand, on the ground insight by bringing the two sides, face-to-face, to debate and validate the differing perspectives. Through the debate we would like to bring forth perspectives of both the sides that will help the other to understand the rationale behind the behavior. The arguments could help dispel the perceptional bias that one generation has for the other. This may also help each party to understand where the other is coming from, in terms of: behaviors; attitudes; expectations and communication styles.
