Lunch & Learn (CoMo) - Recruiting & Retaining Millennials, Part 1

With the great wave of baby boomers reaching retirement age, employers throughout the nation are struggling with ways to appeal to the new generation of workers. Millennials/Generation Y and iGen are very different. They want different things from their job – and in return, they offer a completely new set of skills to their employer. This workshop provides insight into the emerging worker persona to help manufacturers prepare for this new generation and be positioned to better attract and retain them as team members. The cost is $15 per person and a meal is included. *To attend both Part 1 & Part 2 sessions, you will need to register for each separately. Click on a 1 and Part 2 session that works for your schedule/location.
