By 2020, Millennials will make up over 40% of the global workforce and over 90% expect to stay in their jobs less than three years. This generation has a drastically different view on what they expect from their employment experience. The sheer volume of Millennials, combined with the increasing retirement of baby boomers, means that employers will be facing a leadership gap. Employers who understand the unique competencies and perspectives that Millennials bring to the workforce will excel at retaining them.
This presentation will address these challenges and offer practical strategies for retaining this new workforce generation. Contact us for more information >>
