The moniker "Millennial" often is used like a dirty word. Deal with it owners and managers! Millennials (and Generation Zs, too) have moved into the workforce en masse. Jennifer will discuss her success in managing a large team of millennials, as well as the hiring process related to this "target market," recommended compensation and benefits programs desired by this group, and daily management life lessons of a sales manager leading a team of dynamic individuals on the cusp of very successful careers. This is an important session for all owners and managers that want to continue to grow their businesses but yet struggle with the communication style and work habits of this lively and influential generation.
