From the Author:

This book has sparked a great deal of interest coming from employers, managers, teenagers, parents, and teachers. It explains (from working teens, themselves) what is important to teen workers and how today's "bosses" can begin making a difference immediately. Many of the ideas cost little or nothing to implement! A "must-read" for anyone who employs or supervises teenage workers.

Kathy Pennell

This study is unique because it answers three important questions: What is important to teen workers? Why is it important? How can managers use this information right away? It provides managers with The 10 Key Factors to Teen Worker Retention and The 10 Key Drivers of Teen Worker Motivation. These are significant because they are commitment builders and instill high levels of pride in teen workers. Page 33 will show you how important this is to retention and customer service.

For one more eye opener, turn to page 64. This chart shows that teens want to build a career with an organization when they perceive it to be one of the best. Their perception is relative to the quality of the relationship that they have with their manager. This is a significant finding given the expected growth of many industries that employ teen workers.
