The Millennials: Empowering a Modern Workforce

Saturday, March 14
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Salon 1
110 E 2nd St

The workforce is changing, that much is clear, and many people are worried about it. Pick up any newspaper or magazine and you can probably find a great article bemoaning the current crop of young professionals and pining for the work ethic of yesteryear. But whether you’re concerned about the rise of millennials or not doesn't matter: the millennial workforce is here and it’s here to stay. And that’s a good thing. It’s time to stop complaining about them and start empowering them as they climb into the driver’s seat of the global economy.

This panel will provide insight and analysis into the true nature of our changing, modern workforce and examine successful strategies for training, motivating and managing millennial workers. Attendees will hear from businesses and executives who specialize in getting the most out of employees and who have been successfully managing millennial employees and growing their businesses for years.
