As older Baby Boomers steadily exit the workforce, the number of second-wave Millennials represents a tipping point. By 2020, second-wave Millennials will represent more than 20 percent of the workforce. Indeed, the 2020 workforce will be more than 80 percent post-Boomer, dominated by Generation X and the Millennials.

Based on more than a decade of research, this webcast breaks down the Millennial generation into first-wave Millennials (born between 1978 and 1990), and second-wave Millennials (born between 1990 and 2000) at a time when the corporate world is struggling to understand and manage employees in this age group. The key to winning the respect of this generation is strong, highly engaged leadership. To bring out the best in Millennials, managers must carefully manage their expectations, never downplay negative aspects of a job, and always tell it is like it is. The presenter will debunk the most common myths about Millennials in the workplace:

  • They are disloyal and can’t make real commitments to employers.
  • They won’t do the grunt work.
  • They have short attention spans.
  • They want the top job on day one.
  • They need work to be fun.
  • They want to be left alone.
  • They want managers to do their work for them.
  • They don’t care about climbing the proverbial career ladder.
  • Money doesn’t matter to them.
  • Money is the only thing that matters to them.
  • They don’t respect their elders.
  • They only want to learn from computers.
  • It’s impossible to turn them into long-term employees.
  • They will never make good managers because they are so self-focused.
