Number 5 is Alive!

Do you remember that line from the 1986 movie, Short Circuit? It was uttered in reference to Johnny 5, the adorable, input-seeking robot who was brought to life by a lightning strike.

What’s my point?  Like Number 5, Millennials like input.  Why?  They were given so much input and feedback while growing up that they’ve come to expect it in the workplace.

This is good news!  If you’ve got workers who are under 32 years old, tell them what they are doing well, tell them what they are doing wrong, keep it casual and tell them often.  It will engage them and it will educate them.
