Inquisitive, technologically savvy, energetic, passionate, diverse, independent yet collaborative; these are all characteristics of the millennial generation. However, ask employers and you may hear them describe millennials a little differently: lazy, disrespectful, disloyal, and impatient. Are we trying to force a square peg into a round hole by throwing millennials into a workplace structure that runs counter to their values and strengths?

In this webinar, Terp alumnus David Shar and audience tackle the issues that arise within a multigenerational workforce and specifically address the reputation of the largest and most controversial generational group within the business world: Millennials. In this presentation, David acts as generational translator, while together we learn how to attract, motivate and retain the millennial worker while unleashing their true potential.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will…
• Understand the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivators, and how employees differ in their personal motivations.
• Understand the top 5 motivators of employees, and how to use these to attract, motivate and retain top talent.
• Gain a better understanding and appreciation of the natural changes occurring in the workplace and the role that new generations play in ushering in that change.
• Be able to design a nontraditional benefit plan to retain their millennial employees.
