Millennials and the Importance of Workplace Friendships

From the Dallas Morning News yesterday - Work Friendships Motivate Millennials:

"Businesses are perplexed by how to help these young workers build camaraderie while keeping other generations engaged, too.  While nearly half of all workers believe office friendships increase workplace happiness, the importance of these friendships means something different to each generation.

A survey by LinkedIn found workplace friendships not only made millennials happy; half of those surveyed said such relationships motivate them, and 30 percent said these friendships make them productive."
