Program description

Within the next decade, Millennials are on track to account for over half of the U.S. workforce. The problem that exists is Human Resource Directors and Talent Managers are having a difficult time attaining and retaining millennials in the work force. This presentation will not only discuss the currently accepted “best practices” in that pursuit, but also whether there is solid research to support these techniques and offerings. It will explore the questions: what do companies really know and what needs to be done to improve their understanding of millennial motivations?
