Leadership: Hiring Millenials: How to find, train and retain young people in today’s job market. (L4)

Add 
When:

Las Vegas Convention Center, Upper North Hall, N253

Presented by: John Rosanbalm, Conklin Co. ; Karl Klimek, Square One Education Network ; Amy Hirsh Robinson, Interchange Group; Wade Kawasaki, Coker Tire

This is a serious challenge. Unlike boomers and even Gen X, millenials firmly believe that jobs are temporary and that they need to jump around to move forward. This feeling is backed by a weak economy that doesn’t provide much security to inexperienced workers. This seminar would tackle – head on – the challenges an employer faces when hiring and dealing with millenials and provide insight into what makes them happy, productive and stable long term employees. We envision this is a panel discussion that includes both managers/employers and young employees who have found success in the aftermarket.
