My daughter met this super cool 25-year old guy last weekend at a party. He was adorable, graduated from a prestigious college on the East Coast, was very cultured, well-traveled, witty, athletic, interesting, and super smart. They had great chemistry at the party and talked for hours. He kept talking about his “roomies,” which she later found out are his P-A-R-E-N-T-S. He is sitting on $60K of student loans, still looking for work, and living at home with his parents.

Listen up, managers: Your young Millennials want to guidance and structure. In return, they want your respect and approval. And they want you to provide a comfortable home — that is, a fun place to work where they can bring their friends, who are their fellow team members.
Maybe they’ll never move out of the comfortable “home” you built for them.
