Generational differences. We keep hearing about it, and we keep expecting the buzz to go away. But it's not. With half of the full-time workforce being Millennials, and up to 75% of the workforce being Millennial by 2025, teams are trying to figure out what and if internal and external processes need to change, and how to hire, retain, communicate and motivate in a world of shifting demographics. In this interactive session, we'll move beyond, "Here's who the generations are," to what can we practically do as our demographics change.
