This research analysis looks to examine the data available regarding the perceived disengagement and entitlement present in the Millennial generation amongst the workforce. Additionally, data will be presented that this behavior is part of a predictable cycle that Millennials get stuck into. While each and every individual has an opportunity to become any type of person they desire, external influences from family, peers, and world situations can have a powerful effect, sometimes without the subject even realizing it. Having a better understanding of how and why Millennials have developed their character traits can aid modern managers in finding the best practices to grow and develop the potential of these young minds. Further research will indicate that Millennials are every bit as capable as previous generations, but they just require a different managerial approach.
