At other workplaces, employers are taking a different tactic—embracing parental involvement to attract and hold onto young talent and boost morale. They are inviting millennial parents to open houses and hosting “Bring Our Parents to Work Day.”

At the heart of all successful millennial workplaces is communication. Today’s 20-somethings want to be able to candidly speak their minds.

“We are a social-networking generation, which is why communication is so important to us,” said Jeremy Condomina, a 27-year-old business analyst and computer-system trainer with Dade Paper in Miami. “Whether or not we hang out outside of work, we want to know that we have a work family, and even if we step on toes, it’s going to be OK.”

MILLENNIAL FACTS:
—89 percent of millennials say they crave a social and fun workplace, while only 60 percent of baby boomers surveyed wanted a social and fun workplace.
—88 percent of millennials said they wanted their co-workers to be their friends.
—89 percent of workers from every generation believe that work-life balance is key to happiness on the job.
—75 percent of millennials would like to have mentors.
—71 percent of millennials want their co-workers to be a second family.
