More lists! Millennials are the largest generation in the workforce today. They are between the ages of 23 and 38, and they have radically changed the way we work. Instead of criticizing them for their differences, Baby Boomer and Gen X managers can remember that we raised them to have the values and lifestyles they have. Now, we have to live with them in the workplace.

Here are five things you can do to recruit and retain Millennial talent, who are critical to the future of your business. 

1. Meaningfully engage them with key responsibilities on projects
2. Make staying worth their while by updating your incentive program
3. Facilitate mobility by providing professional opportunities across divisions
4. Provide ample feedback—annual review are out and quarterly review are in
5. Spot and groom junior leaders by letting them oversee projects, other staffers and even budgets
