Privileged, needy, entitled and lazy are just a few of the adjectives erroneously used to describe younger Millennials.

Today's teens are "cyber." They are pushing the envelope even more than their first-wave Millennial counterparts to ensure an attractive and comfortable workplace. Flexible work hours, corporate and social responsibility programs, teamwork, casual attire, wellness benefits and innovative technologies are just some of the items on their must-have list.
