Much has been written and discussed about the needs and motivations of the Millennial generation in the workplace. There are consultants who have built entire practices upon the uniqueness of this generation, who maintain that motivating this group requires entirely new management techniques. There are others who debunk the “Millennial myth” entirely, saying that every generation in its twenties has specific characteristics, and this cohort of 20-somethings is no different.

Those born in the ‘80s and ‘90s have been shaped by forces that no generation before has experienced, and many of those influencing factors are quite foreign to their baby boomer leaders. Technology, social media, globalism, changing family structures and the smaller size of this generation have all combined to create a group of workers who, if they are understood, will bring positive and much-needed change to professional services firms. How do small to medium-sized firms unlock that potential?

This video course details the essential skills needed to recruit, construct contractual provisions for, and retain Millennial employees. In terms of employee retention, this valuable series concludes with key insights into how Millennials progress through their careers. Through articles and exercises, each part in the series will provide you with an opportunity to apply the information learned.
