The Millennial generation is a force to be reckoned with. They are talented, innovative, entrepreneurial, and creative. They are also highly mobile and prone to job-hopping. Retaining top talent is a key business imperative and old strategies are no longer effective.

More than 60% of Millennials leave their company in less than three years and their turnover is greater than any other generation. In addition, there are now more Millennials than Baby Boomers in the workforce. 60% are open to a different job and 36% will look for a new job in the next year. No question they have their own style, attitudes, and beliefs. Unfortunately, most companies don’t have a focused retention strategy to retain these important employees.

The good news is that Millennials prefer to stay with the same company and they will if given the right environment and opportunities. There are strategies and tactics that can improve retention rates. During this informative webinar, you will learn why Millennials and other employees stay or leave and learn practical techniques you can use to retain the best employees.
