Consultants Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant discuss four business competencies – in the light of their extensive research about millennials at work – that are crucial in today’s turbocharged commercial environment. Your firm must be “digital, clear, fluid” and “fast.” The authors explain how to incorporate these elements into your organization and why it matters. These are millennial priorities, and these grown children of the digital age will have an outsized influence on business in the years to come. Notter and Grant parse an important transition in the work world. getAbstract recommends this generational marker to executives and human resource officers, and to the millennials who, sooner or later, will fill those positions.

  • What three factors fuel today’s radical business transformation

  • What impact millennials will have on work and the workforce
