About the topic
By 2020 Millennials are expected to comprise 50% of the workforce, by 2025 this number will grow to 75% But are millennials really that different from everyone else and are we spending too much time focusing on them? While this new demographic is indeed a bit part of the future of work we have to remember that we have other generations to consider as well. The future employee is anyone whose attitudes, values, expectations, and behaviors have shifted to adapt to the new world of work. This means they can be 22, 42, or 62. In this keynote Jacob will explore some of the common myths and misconceptions we have about millennials in the workplace and provide some strategies for how organizations need to adapt to having five generations working side-by-side.
