Managing Change

Millennials in the Workplace

Course Overview
People born in the United States between the early 1980s and early 2000s are commonly referred to as Millennials and among some, the we generation. Millennials represent approximately one-fourth of the U.S. population and are projected to represent nearly half of the world’s workforce and 40 percent of the U.S. workforce by 2020 and 75 percent of it by 2025.

This course will focus almost exclusively on that group of people referred to as Millennials and more specifically to issues ranging from recruiting to retaining them in the workplace. As you probably already know, these are not the easiest of challenges. Generally speaking, Millennials’ attitudes and preferences regarding work, career advancement, and the workplace are not identical to those of Gen Xers and Baby Boomers. While making adjustments based on differing preferences and expectations in areas ranging from recruiting to retaining employees is certainly not a new concept, the magnitude of the adjustments needed to recruit, manage, lead, motivate, and retain Millennials is more pronounced. In response, this course addresses numerous techniques and suggestions ranging from how to recruit and train Millennials to how to manage, lead, and retain them.

The information presented in this course focuses on the following topic areas: Millennials’ Work and Workplace Preferences and Attitudes, Recruiting Millennials, Training Millennials, Managing & Leading Millennials, Motivating Millennials, Mentoring Millennials, and Retaining Millennials.
