Description:
There have been volumes written on the coming of Millennials to the workforce, and the changes they will bring and demand. But what is true? According to a recent study 25% of Millennials believe working for a company for seven months makes them a loyal employee. More than 61% of Millennials think they should be promoted every two to three years, and 91% expect to stay in a position for fewer than 3 years. Not exactly the picture of the past workforce. So, what can we do to engage and retain Millennials? This hour-long workshop will dispel myths and provide time for creative collaboration on the challenge of hiring and retaining Millennials. Come prepared to be surprised at some of the ‘facts,’ pleased about at least some of the implications, and involved in the discussion!
Goals and Target Audience:
To provide insight into Millennials (who they are, how and what they think and act), and discuss strategies for hiring and retaining millennials as employees. Targeted audience would be anyone responsible for or involved in hiring for CSU or anyone wanting to know more about millennials.
