Members of the generation know how to use technology to live fuller lives without sacrificing goals.
Even though millennials became the largest generation in the Canadian work force more than two years ago, it’s still common to discuss this generation as if they’re still the kids in the back seat of the car, instead of the colleagues and leaders who, in actuality, are helping drive Canada’s economy forward.
"While I miss the cut by a few years, I work alongside millennials every day. And while they’re often painted by research studies as selfcentred, frivolous with their money and entitled, I find them to be among the most productive, most responsible employees at the company. So I refuse to define millennials by common tropes or traits," says Paul DeLong.
"Instead, I see them as a creative, scrappy generation using all the tools and technology available to them to live rich, rewarding lives," he continues.
