Re-Generation: Disrupting the Way We Think about Generations to Attract, Engage and Retain Employees
Start Date: 5/12/2020Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 5/12/2020End Time: 8:00 PM

Event Description
As more baby boomer employees are retiring, more millennials are joining the workplace (and with 80 million people born between 1982 and 2000 in the US alone, that’s a major shift). Millennials have been the focus of countless books, blogs, and speaking engagements, each purporting to offer a guide on how to manage, recruit, and connect with this new generation. However, Dr. Jessica Kriegel argues, most of our information is incorrect and misguided by stereotypes. Misconceptions about millennial attitudes and behavior are not only negatively impacting their chances of being hired, but can cost organizations talented employees. In this eye-opening session, Kriegel illustrates the most harmful and unfair myths about millennials affecting their role in the workplace—and politics. She offers tips for millennials struggling to distinguish themselves in a world of stereotypes. She gives advice to managers and CEOs on how to lead millennial workforces (e.g., are they really all digital natives?). And, with rare clarity and insight, she provides suggestions to HR executives tasked with developing new engagement models to take into account shifts between baby boomers and younger workers.
Learning Objectives
  • Understand unfair myths about millennials affecting their role in the workplace and politics
  • Learn the truth about what the research says about millennials
  • Draw the line between generational traits and those tied to life stages
