The Global Workforce Is Changing with Millennials in Mind

Four years from now, Millennials will make up half of the global workforce. They were raised in different times and in a different way, and this often leads to misconceptions.

More than 6 out of 10 HR professionals believe that Millennials are “hard to manage” and perhaps even “unprepared for the workplace”.

Companies today face a multigenerational workforce that spans up to four generations. It’s not uncommon for a fresh-out-of-college millennial to join a company that has workers with 30 or more years of experience.

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator.
