7 Workplace Norms That Millennials And Gen Z Are Refusing To Accept

It was once expected for employees to put in hours well above their 40 a week. Racing in to beat the boss and waiting until senior team leaders leave for it to be time to go home are not on the agenda for Millennials and Gen Z

Poor Work-Life Balance

Employers have always expressed their preference for employees to not share their salaries with their coworkers.
