One of the biggest challenges CEOs cite is the ability to source and sustain talent, which is reflected in the dizzying number of surveys and reports focused on millennials. Thirty years ago, William Strauss and Neil Howe coined the term “millennials” for today’s rising generation of talent, but it has only been in the past few years that companies have found themselves befuddled when attempting to determine what captivates and motivates the generation that will come to dominate the workforce in the coming decades.
Outsell’s report by Dr. Adrienne Corn, The Millennial Mandate and the Future of Work, provides clear understanding about the generational talent shift and its importance. It examines the key drivers in this space, opportunities, and the future of work.
Having a broad understanding of who millennials are and what motivates them then piques the question: In what ways do these values impact organizations with multigenerational workforces? Download this report for practical approaches to address the changes happening due to the rise of the millennial workforce as contextualized within the current business environment.
