Millennials at Work: Engaging & Retaining the New Workforce

Join us for a unique look at the youngest generation in the workforce – the Millennials, sometimes known as Generation Y. Did you know that by the time the average Millennial reaches the age of 21, she or he has logged:

  • 10,000 hours on the phone
  • 20,000 hours of TV
  • 250,000 emails and text messages
  • 500,000 commercials

This digital native, random access, multi-tasking, high-expectation segment of our workforce brings great promise and tremendous challenge for Human Resource professionals. Our newest, youngest employees are puzzled with phrases like “pay your dues” and “we tried that already” – and they are inclined to walk not whine when the workplace doesn’t meet their expectations. In short, we need new rules to recruit, engage and retain this generation.
