Generation Y a/k/a Millennials promise to:

  1. Hold only productive meetings. Hallelujah!
  2. Shorten the workday by focusing on productivity.
  3. Bring back administrative assistants — even if Gen Y pays for them out-of-pocket and even if they’re virtual.
  4. Redefine retirement by taking multiple mini-retirements.
  5. They’ll find real mentors by teaching older workers about technology and in return be guided through office politics.
  6. Put human back into human resources.
  7. Promote people to management based on their managerial skills, not their seniority.
  8. Continue to value what their parents have to offer because Gen Y respects their parents and their parents respect their Gen Y children.
  9. Trade off potential raises and promotions for higher starting salaries.
  10. Re-invent the performance reviews by increasing their frequency from semi-annual or even annual to on-the-spot.

I’m with them on number 1 and 2.
