Flashback, five years ago: The Millennials are coming. You know this means a whole new way of doing things. Using your instincts in HR and a trusty laptop, you begin to research and plan for how you will hire the best of this new generation of worker.

Fast forward, the summer of 2016: The Millennials are not only here, they're taking over. Some of your recruiting, development and retention strategies worked, some of them didn't. You get out that trusty smartphone and start to create yet another plan.

Doug Douglas can help. In this program, he'll look at what assumptions turned out to be true about the new workforce generation, and what misconceptions have scuttled employers' attempts to attract and retain the best workers. The program will examine what recruiting techniques work, what engagement activities have the best result and what methods the most successful employers have used to retain top workers. With this insight, you'll learn what you can do now to create a compelling staffing game plan that can make your company a champ.
