Generations Working to Achieve Results Together

To accommodate our growth in this robust economy our firm, like many of our clients, has hired several new team members.  Most of these are young professionals right out of college—generationally known as millennials.  There is always excitement whenever we add new talent to the Clayton & McKervey team, and I believe it is essential to continue adding new talent to the organization.

Now, being from a different generation, I must admit that they work differently than my Baby Boomer peers and I in many aspects. However, I find that this population is no less committed to the firm. I’ve read the misconception that young professionals are unwilling to put in the effort. I couldn’t find anything further from the truth. I find that most of them have great work habits, and are often eager for additional responsibility; even working at midnight as they need to do get the job done. This group of young professionals seem to be a bit more vocal about direct and open feedback, and want clear communication as to what their opportunities are within the organization when contrasted with my peer group. But then again, I think my generation wanted the same. We just weren’t quite as outspoken about it.

Though working with different generations can create some difficulties, the benefits far outweigh the challenges. For fresh faces bring new energy, great ideas, and excitement of the possibilities of a new future.
