Help! My Boss Is a Millennial (and I’m not)
An article by Talivest’s Director of Business Development, Liza Bennigson was recently published by well-known tech blogger and digital analyst Brian Solis. The piece offers a unique perspective on what it’s really like to work for a Millennial, and how negative misconceptions about this generation can have a positive impact in the workplace.
Here’s a snap shot of the article:
I’m not your typical start-up employee. I’m 37 with two young kids, and I still have an iPhone 5. My idea of a wild night is staying up till 11pm to watch The Voice.
My boss, the CEO and co-founder of our start-up, is 26. Constantly on the go, Jayne Ronayne can talk, type, text, walk and drink coffee at the same time. She is at some networking event or another most nights of the week, and wears Chuck Taylor high-tops to the office. She is, undeniably, a millennial.
