To the Baby Boomers and Generation Xers who currently comprise the majority of the workforce, the Millennials among us can be a challenge to understand. They seemingly have different needs and different career priorities than the generations that have come before. Many employers simply think that Millennials will need to adjust their thinking and work ethic. But here’s the reality: Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce by 2025. So, the older generations are the ones who need to re-think the traditional work environment.
To be successful, today’s employers need to consider creative ways to attract and retain Millennials. For example:
- Forget the traditional 9-5 schedule
- Have a brand millennials connect to
- Offer meaningful work
- Promote work-life balance
- Foster a collaborative environment, not a competitive one
- Offer creative perks

Jason Cornell, Esq. will explore common myths surrounding this group and help employers recognize why understanding Millennials is essential for the future success of organizations of every size.
