How to Attract, Retain & Engage Millennials


As the Millennials move towards taking up the center stage of the American workplace, one can expect quite a few changes in the work outlook. In the way every technological wave has changed old habits, this new generation brings with it the feature of having been born almost simultaneously with the onset and explosion of the internet and the other resultant technologies that have shaped our lives in the recent past.

Undoubtedly, the change the Internet has signaled should rank as the biggest shift in human thinking and activity since at least the Industrial Revolution. The profound change the Net has brought into our lives is more easily adapted and ingested by the generation that is contemporaneous with it and its twin, globalization.

This represents both an opportunity and a challenge. Human resources in any organization have to ensure that they get the best out of this generation. This requires them to update their thinking about the workforce. Traditional, tried models may not work with this new, forerunner generation.

HR has to keep its ear to the ground in understanding the needs and abilities of this generation of Millennials, which, after all, is set to become the major constituent of the American workforce in the years to come, even as the accompanying generations phase out.

A webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for human resources professionals, will offer this crucial learning that can help organizations derive the best out the Millennials at the workforce.

Tonia Morris, Founder of Simply HR, LLC, the expert at this webinar, will explain the ways by which to effectively attract the Millennials into organizations, which requires them to get a thorough understanding of what they value in their careers.
