By 2020, Millennials (ages 22 to 40) will comprise half the U.S. workforce. Is your firm ready? Most of the discussion about generations in the workplace centers on supposed inherent differences that make working together a challenge. Countless articles, white papers, and seminars address these differences as a problem to solved. How about recognition of the value those differences bring? And could it be that the reputed generational divide is overstated?

In this webinar, consultant Mel Lester will explain why the “Millennial Makeover” is not something to fear, but an opportunity to be savored. He’ll share research that shows that Millennials are not as different as we’ve imagined, and yet have some common traits that can be leveraged for the benefit of your business. You’ll learn how to tap into the strengths they bring to the workplace, and how to respond to their inevitable growing pains. Mel will outline how each generation—Baby Boomer, Gen X, Millennial—can help each other improve and ultimately transform their differences into a competitive advantage.

Learning Objectives:

  • What you need to know about the dramatic workforce transition in the years ahead
  • Why much of the generational research you’ve reading about isn’t reliable
  • How you can leverage common traits of Millennials to your firm’s advantages
  • How the different generations can work with each other to transform their differences into strengths
