The workforce is facing a dynamic shift. With the decline of boomers and Generation X, millennials will soon take over leadership roles. As a CEO, how can you ensure that you have talented millennials occupying crucial roles in your company?

Millennials are known for their ambition. They want to make a difference, but at the same time, they value autonomy and work-life balance. This group is socially conscious and would easily leave a job that does not align with their values. To attract these employees, Jim Schleckser and Robert Bell suggest establishing yourself as a reputable organization to positively impact employees. By aligning your company’s standards with millennials’ demands, you can retain millennial employees and bring value to your business.

Together, they talk about the characteristics that make the millennial workforce unique and how to attract this group of employees. They also share the positive attributes of millennials in the workforce, the importance of people-first culture for millennials, and these employees’ biggest motivators.
