Before we write today’s youngest employees off for their shortcomings, let’s consider what we should be learning from our Millennial colleagues.

HR leaders in healthcare systems have a problem: nurses are leaving the profession. According to a recent survey, a full eight out of 10 nurses know a colleague who has left the field.
