Level-Up Lab:

Millennial Mindset - Discovering the Motivational Needs of Millennial Employees

According to one research study, Millennials (those born between 1981 and 1996, generally speaking) are now the largest segment in the U.S. workforce. In fact, more than 1 in 3 workers are Millennials—a total of 53.5 million employees. And the proportion will only grow as Boomers retire and more Millennials enter the workplace.

Why does this matter? Because each generation has its own “personality” or set of beliefs and characteristics—shaped by certain cultural influences—that drives its behavior. Understanding the mindset of Millennials and what motivates them is the key to maximizing job performance and work productivity. This program will show managers how to adapt their own behavior to this growing segment of the workforce in order to create an environment that leverages Millennials’ unique skillset.
