Tap into the potential of theMillennial Generation.
With professionals enjoying longer careers than ever before, offices encompass multiple generations of employees. However, the rise of "the Millennials," also known as "Generation Y," has brought a new set of challenges to managers. Millennials work differently, think differently, and have a different set of priorities. This can leave non-Millennial managers, at best, confused about how to manage and motivate their teams.
That's just the short-term challenge for businesses. The long-term challenge is to find a way to win and retain top talent from this generation of workers, who are more willing than any generation before them to leave a position if they find something more interesting or more lucrative. With 50 percent of business executives set to retire in the next five years, and thousands of others poised to do the same soon after, it's essential to build up a staff of dedicated, invested Millennials in the workforce of any company that's serious about its survival.
