As the number of millennials grow in their careers, get promoted and start to lead teams, experts predict changes in organizational communications, increased automation, concerns about retention, a focus on mentoring and a renewed approach to wellness are likely outcomes.  In this session, University of Virginia's Center for Politics Director, Larry Sabato, hosts a discussion with two high achieving millennials, each representing different sides of the aisle.

You’ll hear:

  • What work-related issues mean most to workers in the millennial age group and what organizations can do to recruit and retain top young talent.
  • Which of the trends above are likely to gain traction.
  • A closer look at what current workplace practices remain key effective practices no matter what employee groups coexist in your organization.
