MEGA SESSION: Managing the Digital Workforce: Integrating Millennials into Organizations for Long-Term Success

SHRM 2015 Annual Conference
Learn how to effectively and efficiently integrate Millennials to increase multigenerational engagement, digital talent retention and competitive advantage.

To compete in the "New Economy," companies want digitally savvy employees with a capacity for innovation. Many believe Millennials have these core competencies and focus on recruiting them into organizations. Once the employment contract is signed, however, companies struggle with balancing existing workforces, corporate cultures and business practices with Millennial expectations and behaviors. You will learn:

  • How to create an Employee Value Proposition and why it is critical to Millennial recruitment and engagement.
  • Three reasons why companies with great intern programs fail to create long-term, productive employees.
  • Six onboarding steps to boost multi-generational productivity, performance and long-term retention.
  • Five strategies to successfully balance the needs and practices of older generations with Millennial expectations and behaviors.
