Reminder: “To Adapt or not to Adapt; that is the Millennial Question”

Attention: Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, Lifestyle Editor TORONTO/ON/MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - April 13, 2009) - They've been called Millennials, the Net Generation, and Generation Y, but in the workforce, employers are calling them a pain. Why?

Many of the latest generation to enter the workforce expect flexibility in their work hours, their attire, and how they communicate. And if granted these accommodations, these young graduates argue that they will be more productive than the generations that preceded them.

Is there merit to these expectations and claims? Should workplaces be adapting to suit the demands of a generation whose eldest 'members' are under 30?

Lauren Friese, Gen Y and founder of TalentEgg.ca, Canada's online career hub for students and new grads looking for meaningful entry level roles,

And

Ken Seville, Gen X and co-founder of CiviSide.com, the premiere career site that connects young Canadian military Reservists with Reserve-friendly employers, can't seem to agree.

Lauren argues that Gen Y's demands are simply a market correction on an out-dated, broken system. Ken argues that accommodating Gen Y's demands will be bad for society in general and the individual in particular.

Lauren and Ken are available for live media debates and interviews at your convenience.
