Do generational differences at work have you perplexed? Annoyed? Confused? Do you look at other generations at work and think to yourself WTF?

 My Way or the Highway in Hawaii is frustrated that their young employees don’t want to come into a physical office. Yet, they complain that they don’t feel “connected” to the firm. WTF?
