As I approach the end of my third decade as a member of the British workforce, I’ll admit that sometimes I can be a bit of a workplace dinosaur.
CVs regularly land on my desk showing dates of birth when I remember rushing off to 'Our Price' to buy the latest Wham single, or worrying about whether my rah-rah skirt matched my lace gloves.
If you’ve had to explain to anyone recently who Bowie or Prince were, you will understand…
The workplace has moved on too. I have become used to addressing managers by their first names, am glad to be rid of telex tape and typewriter ribbons. I love the pace and responsiveness of email, smart phones and social media, but find increasingly that organisations managed, and led, by those of a certain age are struggling to engage and get the best out of the younger end of the workforce.
Cue: The millennials.
