The rapid pace of technological evolution has led to a sea change in the workplace. Older workers are staying in the workforce longer, while younger employees are coming in equipped with skills and expectations that set them apart from their predecessors. In order to harness the potential of the Millennial generation, employers are forced to change not just the way they attract and retain talent, but also many of the assumptions they've made about the way markets work. In this in-depth analysis of evolving corporate practices, Millennial expectations, and the future of international business, Meister and Willyerd offer thoughtful tips, the latest in corporate training, and advice for negotiating this new workforce. However, while seemingly targeted at a wide array of people, the information contained in 2020 Workplace will be of use largely to managerial or Human Resources personnel with a specific lack of understanding about the expectations of Millennials. While that's a fine target, readers not in that niche will feel like they're being told something they already know.

To those corporate executives and managers who’ve naysayed the power and transformational capabilities of Web 2.0, this book is for you––if you’re open to change. To those readers, consultants, and employees already embracing the world of social media, this collection of case histories, significant statistics, and personalized anecdotes will enable you to further the engagement within (and without) your organizations. Regardless, it is clear that author-scholar Meister and former chief learning officer Willyerd have tackled and tamed the tiger of talent. Be aware, within their recitation of the 10 forces shaping the world to the final 10 initiatives HR can spark to achieve the 2020 workplace, is an ever-growing concern that the formerly pooh-poohed death of talent will be real in a decade. Many of their lessons learned are standard operating procedure in professional literature and daily news, like the shifting demographics of the workplace and the demand for corporate social responsibility. --Barbara Jacobs

This book was outstanding - and, speaking from a millennial perspective it hit the target on so many frustrations I experience in the workplace (with respect to my generational needs) - read this book!
I particularly like how the book offers compelling research and data, but is not seeped in theory alone -- the authors offer suggestions and nice end-of-chapter summaries that are pragmatic and applicable to anyone in HR or management.
Recommendation: Buy it and read it. You may or may not agree with all of their forecasts, but at least you will know what you are facing when recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce.
Especially a good read for HR managers, leadership and development people, and executives.
Its style is clear and accessible and the messages are direct. I find it particularly valuable due to the breadth of industry research and resultant real life examples.
It is a plain-speaking eye-opening perspective of the changes occurring in our flat and increasingly connected business world.
As the edges of our businesses blur ... here is a tool and a source for a today's and tomorrow's executives not just in human resources, to stay relevant, and oriented - I commend this book to you
The book is solidly documented which makes the conclusions more reliable.
But are we ready for the change? I am wondering where the non-network generation will fit in in 2020?
I really recommend this book since it gives goocd food for thought!
