In the face of increased competition for candidates with critical skills, many of the best fits will come from the millennial generation (those born 1982 – 2001). If you need to replace an aging or retiring workforce with new talent, chances are you’re going to be hiring a millennial.
These smart, eager grads (b. 1982-2001) have some things in common with Gen Xers and Boomers...yet in some surprising ways, are different. However, hiring young talent and keeping them engaged need not be tough.
In this webinar, Rebecca Ryan, Next Generation Consulting, will share her firm’s research from the 20-40 year old segment, and will answer the most popular questions recruiters, managers and leaders commonly ask about bridging the gap between generations. Annabella Green, PKF Texas P.C. will speak about her firm’s talent management program that has created an award-winning workplace environment that is attractive to all generations, and provides millennials with the opportunities to succeed and grow.
Specifically we'll explore:
- What are the best ways to recruit millennials to your firm?
- Which is more important: learning opportunities or paid time off?
- How do millennials force-rank the six dimensions of employee engagement (life-work balance, rewards, development, trust, management, and connection), and how does that compare to other generations of workers?
- A case study of how continuous feedback, development and retention can go a long way to addressing workplace needs and expectations of younger generations.
You will leave this presentation infused with millennial optimism, armed with the strategies to recruit tech-savvy, mulit-tasking young professionals and be rewarded with engagement and dedication for many years to come.
