The newest generation to hit the workforce goes by many different names. The basic birth year bracket for this generation is 1982 – 1995 or 2000, depending on your source. The names include Generation Y, Millennial Generation, Generation Next, Net Generation, Echo Boomers and even the Peter Pan Generation. Here is the kicker: this generation is HUGE and is needed to ensure continued economic growth. The Baby Boomer Generation is around 120M the X Generation is around 90M. We just don’t have enough X Generation professionals to fill the leadership void being created by the Baby Boomer push to retirement. The Millenials will be quickly pushed into leadership positions over the next 10 years to fill this void. On Thursday, February 23rd ASPE President David Mantica and ASPE Vice President of Marketing JT Moore presented the free web seminar “Millennials Rising: Critical Success Factors for Leading and Empowering Generation Y.” In this web seminar, David and JT discussed a detailed look at Millennial characteristics, how to motivate Millennials in the work place, how to empower Millennial success through task assignment and work empowerment, and the issues around discipline, corrective action, and feedback circles with them.
Listen to a recording of this web seminar in its entirety by clicking View Event Recordings (at the top right). Whether you are a business analyst, project manager, IT manager or director, business manager or executive, you must understand how to properly drive the growth and development of your high-potential Millennials. Based on the significantly different characteristics of this generation, a detailed understanding is necessary for success. Or, as this generation is very willing to do, they will quickly leave and find something that does fit who they are.
