  4. 10-2 The Think Tank 1110am, Ken Davidson, Millennials


    Fri, 2 Oct 2015

    Are you a Millennial or do you hire or work with any? (That’s people born between 1981 to 1996.) Companies are looking for ways to keep the millennial job-hopping generation from saying, “I quit.” Many change jobs 11 times between ages 18 & 45...and stay in a job for an average of 2 years. Is that your experience as a Millennial or with Millennials? As more & more Millennials crave a better work-life balance, many employers say their generation causes major problems due to the growing expense of recruiting, hiring and job training. How do you keep a workforce in tact & maintain continuity when Millennials become the base?
