The presentation will contain advice, research, case studies and examples that will illustrate how you can both attract and manage Gen-Y workers so they can rise to leadership positions instead of leaving for other opportunities. Companies are having trouble recruiting and retaining younger employees, yet they will represent 3/4 of the entire workforce by 2025. Our research has found that the average Gen-Y worker leaves in just over two years so it's imperative that you keep your younger employee's engaged and motivated. Case studies include Sodexo, Ernst & Young, Intel, Dreamworks, and more so you can learn how other companies have successfully engaged this generation of workers.
