Bruce Pfau on generational trends in Harvard Business Review

April 18, 2016

Bruce Pfau, vice chair of human resources and communications at KPMG, wrote about generational [in]differences in the Harvard Business Review article, “What do Millennials Really Want at Work? The Same Things the Rest of us do.”

He begins by examining the stereotypes that exist about Millennials: they are self-centered, lazy, and wired for instant gratification. He goes on to explain, however, that “a growing body of evidence suggests that employees of all ages are much more alike than different” in regards to workplace culture and behaviors. “Companies of all kinds are obsessed with understanding [Millennials] better,” he writes.
