Workshop 2 – How To Successfully Recruit & Retain Millennials

Building A Millennial-Friendly Company Culture

Millennials are often attracted to the influencer culture and entrepreneurship. If you understand what makes those cultures attractive to them, you will be able to create a culture of “intrapreneurship” within your company. 

  • The difference between the three dominant work cultures of our time:
    • Corporate Culture
    • Startup Culture
    • Influencer Culture
  • Defining your company’s “WHY” and making your team feel a part of it.
  • Diverse, Inclusion, and Flexibility

Attracting Top Millennial Talent To Your Brand

Here, we will discuss how to elevate your brand perception and communicate your company culture with the new generation of the workforce. We will cover:

  • Building your company leaders’ personal brand on social media in a dignified way
  • Making the application process digital-first, super easy, and user-friendly
  • Getting to the bottom of your applicant’s true intention – is this a job, a career, or a calling?
  • If they have or want to have a side hustle, having an open conversation about it to decide if this is for you
  • Hiring well, but not getting too attached
  • Communicating what they will learn and achieve beyond compensation for their time and effort.
