Millennials are too picky --focused on lifestyle, not work. You might think this is a complaint unique to American employers. But as I'm discovering in my travels through Thailand, the lament is echoed here.
Talk to anyone here recruiting young folks, and they consider millennials a risky prospect. They're are easily bored. Attracting and retaining them is hard. They're difficult to keep engaged.
Thailand is an established Asian powerhouse that claims to have 0.07 percent unemployment. It's in the middle of a transition from manufacturing to design and, from what I can see, experiencing unprecedented prosperity, despite huge environmental and political challenges. When I arrived in Bangkok, I expected swarms of autorickshaws like you see in Bangalore; instead I saw fleets of Mercedes, as in Sao Paulo.
