Demystifying Millennial Management

Millennials now make up a majority of the workforce—yet somehow managers are still puzzling over how to best recruit, retain, and engage this confounding generation.

Audience takeaways:

  • Demystify the Millennial management conundrum and explore how to streamline communication and collaboration across Boomers, Xers, Millennials, and even Gen Z.
  • Best practices from technology to manufacturing, hospitality, and other industries provide real-world case studies of successful Millennial management.
  • Comprehensive look at management strategies gives leaders the awareness, tools, and tactics to unlock Millennials’ full potential while managing career growth and expectations.

Facilitating Knowledge Transfer

While Millennials and Gen Z continue to draw media attention, other demographic shifts are afoot: Baby Boomers are retiring. There are now
fewer Boomers in the US labor force than there are Millennials or Gen Xers, and 47% of business owners over 65 don’t have a transition plan.

Audience takeaways:

  • Explore tools and strategies to foster mentorship between Boomers and other generations.
  • Preparation to facilitate knowledge transfer across generational lines before Boomers graduate to their next stage of life—taking their valuable institutional knowledge and experience with them.
