One of the best books I've read is The Trophy Kids Grow Up: How the Millennial Generation is Shaking up the Workplace, by Ron Alsop.
The Millennial Generation
The "helicopter parent" provides the foundation for Alsop's observations. Their children are showing up with college degrees at Fortune 500 Companies and bringing their parents with them for interviews and salary negotiations. You've probably heard of "Take Your Daughter to Work," but he addresses "Take Your Parents to Work" and the challenges this is creating for corporate America.
This eleven chapter, 262 page book, addresses the millennial generation's tendencies, how the millennials and employers will adapt to one another, and organizations who are taking the lead in effectively working with this generation and their parents. The book cover states, "The Trophy Kids Grow Up will show employers, parents, and millennials themselves how this remarkable generation promises to stir up the workplace--and perhaps the world."
