Whether they are being corrected or being praised, this generation wants to learn and continually get better, and they know that without a strong feedback system, they will be unable to do so.
• Cross Generational Support – To make the Millennials more a part of the system, management should use the different generations to both teach the Millennials new skills, and allow the Millennials to teach older generations the skills that they are dominant at. This will allow the Millennial generation to feel more welcome in the workplace, as well as feel like they are needed, so as to not pack up and leave for another job opportunity.

I would try and coexist with my older coworkers in order to maintain a good reputation within that organization.
