Attracting, Growing and Retaining Millennials

Group of young business people and designers.

The Millennials are the latest generation at the American workforce, which is now home to an amazing five different generations. The Millennials, born roughly in the early 1980’s and reaching their early adulthood in the early 2000’s, are unique in one sense: they are born and are growing almost conterminously with the explosion in the present-day technologies and all their attendant spinoffs, such as the social media.

As they are set to make up the largest chunk of the American workforce in the very immediate future, it is necessary for organizations to understand how to harness their talents and energies for the better of the organization. HR has to understand their qualities and characteristics and has to create a Millennials-friendly workplace that enhances their skills and abilities.

How do organizations do this? What are the ways by which they brand their organizations as ones that are amiable to the Millennials? This interesting and valuable learning can be gained at a webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the human resources areas, on June 19.
