  • Generation X and Millennials Andrew Krzmarzick Graduate School, USDA
  • ” Don't fall prey to stereotypes. We're all reading a lot of stuff about the millennials right now, and there's a tendency to paint them with the same brush. They can be very different… It's all about going out and finding people who are a good job fit, a cultural fit and a lifestyle fit .“ - Ed Powell Director of Business Development Monster Government Solutions

  • Top 10 Ways to Recruit and Retain Gen X and Millenials (and everyone else!)
    • Be committed to helping us achieve our goals
      • Don’t mention “climbing the corporate ladder” or “paying dues”
      • Too many of us have seen parents lose jobs after years of ladder climbing and dues-paying
    • Provide as much training as possible
    • help us develop new skills while we are with you

    • Challenge our creativity
    • give us a challenging assignment or problem to solve right away
    • Provide opportunities for us to work in spirited team situations
    • Give opportunities for individual achievement and recognition, too.
    • Make the work environment fun and informal.
    • Introduce us to others and encourage the development of workplace friendships.
    • Allow us to experience a daily sense of tangible achievement
    • Short-term projects and goals work best
    • Give us opportunities to reinvent ourselves within the organization
    • Learn new skills
    • Move cross-functionally
    • Redesign roles
    • Report to a new mentor
    • Work different hours
    • Working from a new location

    • Use social virtual networks
    • Bring back high performers

      • Offer student loan repayment
      • Or we’ll be paying them off for years (and jumping jobs to get more money anyway!)
    • Thank You!
