Study: Young workers now value respect over 'fun' perks in the workplace

However, researchers at the Novak Leadership Institute at the University of Missouri and Kansas State University discovered today's young workers—ages 21-34—represent a life-stage shift toward placing more value on having respectful communication in the workplace over trendy work perks.
