But what many really, really want, in the words of The Spice Girls, is gratitude and acknowledgement of work well done. That’s what I’ve concluded after interviewing authors of two new books (leadership trainer Shola Richards’ Making Work Work and Duke University professor Dan Ariely’s Payoff: The Hidden Logic That Shapes Our Motivation, out next month) and Halogen Software global practice leader Anita Bowness as well as reading recent surveys. Their insights, I think, can be extraordinarily useful for older workers themselves and for the managers they work for. Lucy Kellaway: A blast of common sense frees staff from appraisals. Last week I did the most unexpectedly uplifting thing I’d done in ages.
What Do Millennials Really Want at Work? The Same Things the Rest of Us Do. Saturday Night Live recently featured a sketch poking fun at Millennials.
It opens with a young woman frantically texting on her iPhone, approaching her boss and asking for a promotion. The boss asks how long she’s been with the company. What Millennials Want from a New Job. Millennials, it seems, really are the job hoppers people say they are.
Those born between 1980 and 1996 are the most likely to look for and change jobs, according to Gallup’s new report “How Millennials Want to Work and Live.” Our research — which provides an in-depth look at what defines Millennials as employees, people, and consumers — both confirms and casts aside some of the myths about this particular generation. It paints a nuanced picture that can help inform companies looking to hire and retain Millennial employees — a group that is now the largest generation in the U.S. On the job-hopping question, we found that 21% of Millennial workers had left their job in the last year to do something else, a number that is more than three times higher than that of non-Millennials who report doing the same.

Lucy Kellaway: Six things that have driven workplace rudeness. Last Tuesday on my way to work I was waiting to cross a road when a middle-aged woman next to me dropped some coins on to the footpath.
Six people bent down to retrieve them for her. A man in a smart navy suit fumbled in the gutter to find a 1p piece, which he proceeded to hand over.

It's not the marketing message that counts - it's disrupting people's habits. Branding discussions often focus on positioning and market segments.
If a brand is not selling as well as it could, the assumption is that it must not be reaching its target audience with the right message. And if the team could only develop the right message, the brand would take off. In most cases, though, positioning does not matter much. The Ehrenberg-Bass Institute has examined purchase data from various product categories. As explained in the institute director Byron Sharp’s book, brands in a product category differ in their market share, but the pattern of sales within each market segment is about the same. If positioning isn’t driving sales, what is? Habits. If habits are so important, why aren’t they central to branding discussions? Part of the problem is that marketers still develop insights about their brands from asking consumers in focus groups and surveys.
