Popular organizational development literature is filled with articles about how the millennial generation is compelling managers and theorists to re-examine management practices. 

Annual Gallup surveys have consistently shown that only one-third of workers are “engaged in their jobs.”  Gallup defines engaged employees as “those who are involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work and workplace.” The same surveys find that 20% of workers are highly committed and 60% are somewhat committed.

Success comes from culture

When I first walked in to our head office in Minneapolis – a beautiful building, with a welcoming reception desk – my first thought was “Oh my, I don’t think I’m going to be allowed into the building.” Hanging behind reception were large flat-screen televisions, one of which listed the company dress code. My t-shirt and jeans weren’t going to make the cut. The office had an environment that seemed to echo the 1960s. The boardroom and executive floor resembled a scene from the television series Mad Men.
