Sweat the Small Stuff: Smart Strategies to Engage Employees

Tuesday 12:15 – 1:15 PM

Session Description

With approximately 10,000 baby boomers retiring every day, it’s more important than ever to attract the best employees you can hire while dealing with an ever-shrinking talent pool. Even more critical, is keeping your new hires from leaving after spending substantial time, money and human resources to get them onboard. Millennials will make up about 75% of the workforce by 2025. Although offering a large pool of candidates to select from, this generation is sufficiently different than previous generations, making this a crucial conversation to have now, rather than wait until it’s too late. Some of these inherent differences in the millennial mindset include less hierarchy, more transparency and flatter organizations. Millennials also have a strong desire for learning, growing, developing and enhancing their skills. By learning these critical communication and engagement strategies now, you will keep your top talent from becoming someone else’s tomorrow.
