Generational Differences in the Workplace

April 16, 2015 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Leading and managing Millennials is a struggle for leaders at every level in an organization.  Leaders need good and practical information about what they can do to lead Millennials effectively.  Unfortunately what they currently have to rely on is anecdotal at best, misleading at worst, and often clearly ineffective.  What they need is data-based information they can use to make strategic decisions about how to lead Millennials and strengthen their organizations. Drawing on fieldwork and data from global research including more than 25,000 Millennial respondents, the book reveals how Millennials really operate, what they really want, and what really motivates them. It offers tactics and strategies for using this information to increase productivity, strengthen organizations, build robust talent pipelines, and gain a competitive advantage.
