In the modern workplace Millennials are often stereotyped as being “lazy”, “entitled”, and “not having a work ethic.” And, if you ask a managers from Generation X or the Baby Boomer generation, they will tell you that it’s just plain frustrating to “deal with these kids who just want to text all day and get on Facebook.” Most managers find that they are irritated by their younger employees a good portion of the time, because they’re “just different than we were at that age…”
In this informative Webinar, HR Consultant and CEO Natalie Ivey and CMC “Chief Millennial Consultant”, Taylor Ivey, of Results Performance Consulting will take you through the stereotypes and the realities of “generational resentment”, how best to overcome generational conflicts, and how to more effectively manage Millennials to keep them engaged, productive, and to actually keep them working for you vs. having them walking out the door to find another job.
