Workplace Application: Learn how to engage the Millennial Generation through interactive exercises, humorous video clips, graphic visuals and innovative practices.

This session introduces research from The FutureWork Institute on the challenges and opportunities that the newest generation brings to the workplace. Our newest workers have developed hypertext minds that leap around with cognitive structures that are parallel, not sequential. Are we ready for them? Do we know what their ideal workplace looks like, or the organizations they most admire? Might we have to teach social skills to a group that, at graduation, have spent 11,000 hours in school and 15,000 hours in front of the TV? Get ideas and successful practices from the FWI research, gathered from organizations that have developed innovative practices to build relationships and engage this generation.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 - 8:00am to 9:15am
