2,132 views

Published on

Millennial workplace expert, Adam Smiley Poswolsky, shares why despite being shackled by debt, recession, and the jobs crisis—millennials (who will make up 75% of the workforce in ten years) aren’t motivated by money. Rather, they’re driven to make the world more compassionate, innovative, and sustainable. This presentation provides tangible ways millennials can invent their own path, find meaningful work, and build a career that matters.
