Debunking Millennial Myths

Debunking Millennial Myths


The first wave of Millennials is rising up the ranks at work and shaping — or making — key business decisions. It’s important to understand the impact they’re having on today’s changing workplace, but if the buzz is to be believed, they’re either lazy narcissists or energized optimists bent on saving the world. So, what’s really going on?


Our guest Tuesday at 8 pm ET on #MillennialTalk Twitter Chat is Samantha Klein @samjoyk. We will be chatting with Samantha about the perceptions (and misperceptions) of how Millennials work, think and relate to the world at large.


A proud member of the Millennial generation, Samantha is a Marketing Manager for IBM Social Business with a passion for brands, storytelling, customer experience and Smuckers strawberry jam. She worked on the IBV Millennial Study, blogs at IBM’s Social Business Insights, and couldn’t be more excited to put an end to Millennial myths!


Some of Tuesday’s talking points:


  • Do Millennials have different career goals and expectations than generations prior?

  • Are Millennials more likely to jump ship if a job doesn’t fulfill their passions?

  • Do Millennials need constant acclaim, aka the “Trophy Generation” stigma?

  • Are Millennials digital addicts? Do they share too much online?

  • How are Millennials encouraging more collaboration in the workplace and in life?
