Millennials ARE in fact a problem, or if you prefer a ‘point-at-issue.’ Companies all across the country are rapidly reworking their HR programs to cope with the unique challenges Millennials present. While it’s also true that some older employees and management are slow to adapt to change (new technologies, processes, methods) it is not 100 percent incumbent on the existing workforce to cater to the Millenni-als. That catering is in large part why they present issues in the first place.” By Michael Broadhurst, owner of Mike’s Mobile Mics: “Brock, there is a lot in what you say. I am 68 years old. I go to work every day starting at somewhere between 6 and 8 a.m. and finally retire somewhere between 7 and 11 p.m. Every day. Don’t tell me I get in the way. I cannot find many young people willing to put in the time and effort to learn the trade and do the work. It is a time-intensive profession that requires much beyond the salaried 9-to-5 workday. I remember the 3 a.m.-still-working times when a deadline was upon me. Not terribly attractive to many folks.” We have the best employees!
