Why is this topic imporant? Baby Boomers and Millennials make up the majority of the workforce today. Baby boomers may increase by 11.9 million; millenials are the largest generation in America with 75.4 million, spend $200 billion annually,.and stay an average of just 2 years at one position.
Businesses across the nation are struggling with finding out how to retain good young professinals as well as how to facilitate conversations between the 3-4 generations now working under one roof. Understanding the history of generations as wel as the millenial generation and the Z generation coming up behind them is part of the key to business development and optimization.
We look forward to seeing you at this month's luncheon as we discuss ways to understand and bridge this gap.
