Millennials made a poor first impression and developed the reputation of being lazy, entitled, selfish, and disloyal. The truth is Millennials are no lazier or more entitled, selfish, or disloyal than any previous generation.

Millennials differ from previous generations and how companies and leaders can use this information to immediately boost productivity without building an office full of ping pong tables, beer kegs, and participation trophies.


The Millennial generation is the largest and most diverse generation in the history of the United States.

They will make up seventy-five percent of the workforce by 2030. But they made a poor first impression. Now, people accuse them of being lazy, entitled, selfish, and disloyal.

The truth is they just grew up with different experiences than older generations and are motivated by different things.

The Millennial Whisperer, advertising executive Chris Tuff puts into context the ways Millennials differ from previous generations and how companies and leaders can use this information to immediately boost productivity.

Get rid of the ping pong tables. Bring the beer kegs home. Toss the participation trophies in the trash.

This is the practical, profit-focused playbook companies, leaders, and even Millennial workers, have been waiting for.
