Bring Out the Best in Y

They have been described as entitled, egotistical, demanding, driven to make a difference, and wanting the kind of life where every minute has meaning. This is Generation Y, and like it or not in two years they will comprise the majority of the American workforce.Indeed, Generation Y is challenging workforce conventions. They demand fast-track career positioning, greater work-life balance, positive feedback, training and cutting-edge technology. And they are also the best-educated, most tech-savvy, high-performing generation in history.To attract workers from this generation, you need to understand what makes them tick and how to work with them to bring out their best potential–-without alienating the rest of your workforce.In this workshop, you will discover:

  • How to manage Y talent during a recession and what to expect when the recession is over;
  • How to leverage Gen Y talent to move your organization further, faster;
  • Strategies for recruiting and retaining Y talent (job design, onboarding, career pathing, etc.); and
  • Strategies for bridging the generation gap to build a great multi-generational team.

Guest Speakers: Gina Kellog-Garder and Karen Rulifson, Monarch Leadership
