Session Description: Generation Y employees will challenge the way organizations train. The addition of this generation to our workforce will change businesses and, the reality is, HOW businesses manage their employees and their talent within the organization. While WLP’s (Workplace Learning Professionals) will need to ensure that Gen Y employees have the right skills to meet strategic challenges of the organization, companies will need to explore different platforms and smaller segments to meet both the individual and organizational needs. They need to learn, but training modules will use new modalities, including twitter, blogs, and tagging. A variety of Web 2.0 technologies must be integrated into business communications with employees. This session will discuss techniques to maximize Generation Y employee's skills and meet your organizations needs. The changes to learning systems will be reviewed, and participants will learn how to change the way they communicate with their Gen-Y employees.
