Within the myriad of posts about millennials there does seem to be a grain of truth, that the culture of society is changing for all of us. Online media means that praise and criticism are now immediate, panic and fear of missing that gem of information is real, and phone addiction is on the increase. There are more and more apps to keep us connected, but when do we have any time to think?
Social networking sparks loads of ideas but these are not always thought through and to some extent cause flawed information. The focus on millennials is a case in point. Concluding that because young people live in a networked world we need to treat them completely differently creates a challenge. There are people of all ages who think in different ways, that is what creates the diversity of our culture, and we need to consider everyone. For the first time we have 5 generations together in the workforce. For me, futuristic aspects interest me, I engage with innovation, I am a big user of social media, I am transient in my thinking, I am in the workforce, I wish I was a millennial although I’m 60+, maybe I always have been one!
