Bridging Generational Gaps -- Understanding the Expectations of Millennial Learners
There's no doubt the generational gaps are widening, thanks to the incoming force of 80 million Millennials born between 1980 and 2000. Their expectations are far different than those of their older colleagues, which have been observed for decades. This often creates great tension and causes unnecessary employee turnover, increasing recruiting and training budgets, plus more headaches.
While Millennials have a unique perspective on how work should be done in general, they've grown up with technology as not only a tool, but a requirement for getting things done and finding answers to their infinite questions. This leads to a need for adjusting the way training is conducted from day one of new hire orientation through continuous professional development opportunities throughout their careers.
In this session, Cara Silletto will explain who the Millennials are, what shaped their expectations, and how to adjust your training programs to engage and retain them over time, ultimately providing bottom-line results for your organization.
