Ready or Not, Here They Come! Understanding and Motivating the Millennial Generation
For the first time in the history of mankind, there are four generations in the workforce. There are 35 million Traditionalists and 84 million Baby Boomers, the largest numbers of which began to retire in 2011. There are 68 million Generation Xers and 79 million Millennials, or Generation Y. There will be no escaping the demographic reality that in the very near future, there will be 84 million retiring Baby Boomers, followed by 68 million Gen Xers to replace them. This will create an employee vacuum in the workforce that only the 79 million Gen Yers can fill, increasing demand and competition for Generation Y employees, in addition to increasing the ongoing challenge of working with a multigenerational workforce.
In this highly thought-provoking and participant-driven workshop, Dr. Gustavo Grodnitzky, well known as Dr. Gustavo, will provide participants with actionable information regarding:
- Generational differences.
- Gen Y challenges.
- Gen Y strengths.
- Recruiting and Retaining Gen Y: Implementing five “magnet factors” that attract and keep the bestof Gen Y in your workforce.
- Strategies and tactical Steps to better manage Gen Y: An six-factor action list.
Dr. Gustavo will identify for each participant’s own organisational “magnet factor” strengths and challenges as well as identify immediate tactical steps they can take to overcome those “magnet factor” challenges. Given the reality of the demographics, every industry will be competing for the same people. Understanding and managing these factors will ensure success for the participants’ businesses.
Participants will leave with specific action plans outlining what steps are required, strategically and tactically, to implement their “magnet factors” as well as individual steps to maximize Gen Y performance. These steps will be outlined for each participant in a readily accessible format where they can refer to their plan on a daily and weekly basis.
This workshop is also suitable for a half day retreat.
