According to a recent report, millennials could become the most productive generation with the right combination of management and motivation. Millennials, the generation born between 1980 and 1996, are influential by virtue of their sheer numbers and their remarkable cultural and technological impact on society. By 2020, millennials are projected to eclipse the Baby Boomers in size, and currently 58% of the workforce consists of millennials, according to Pew Research. It’s no wonder, then, that organizations and their leaders are realizing the importance of engaging millennials in the workplace.
This is also why retaining employees has never been more imperative. We know that millennials have had a different upbringing than past generations, and that they differ in their expectations of themselves and others. At this session, Tamara Anderson of Dale Carnegie ND and MN and Brein Haugen of Rasmussen College will discuss strategies for understanding and retaining millennials, as we look at qualitative research.
- Understand why millennials are leaving companies
- Identify action steps you can implement right away
- Hear directly from some of our region’s working millennials as they share their perspective
