    When they don't perform to my liking, I make them kneel on rice.

    I hang motivational posters on the wall and call them team members. Makes them feel special.

    We are having to come up with a way to deal with these lazy, entitled, self-important piece of shit Millennials we have. If it were up to me we'd fire them all and implement a 30+ age limit for employment. Of course the age limit wouldn't apply to women.

    finding "mature" employees are better at the jobs, and have a better work ethic (well, they actually have work ethics)

    The workforce is full of incompetent lazy worthless fucks. Supervising managers are much more important to the success of the company and certainly don't feel entitled.

    First thing I do when I take over management duties is weed out the incompetent & lazy workers (which I've found to be about 60% of of the staff, on average) ... I have no patience for employees that just show up to collect a paycheck.

    It takes some money. You have to pay people the fair prevailing wage. You have to back up your safety talks with money to improve the working environment. Find a way to get them involved in the safety and workplace improvement programs - possibly a suggestion box with a formal process of management review and implementation of the best ideas. Reward the biggest contributors to your program. Discipline and push out the non-contributors.

    I created a bonus program based on office performance as a whole (everyone has different bonus amounts based on position, but the goals are TEAM goals)

    I recognize accomplishments openly

    I provide constant feedback (positive and negative)

    I organize and highly encourage participation in at least one community service event per month

    I celebrate employee bdays, anniversaries and offer office team building get togethers outside of the workplace
