The Millennials are Coming! Can You Hear the Flapping of Their Flip-Flops?, Charles Schewe, Ph.D., professor of marketing, UMass Isenberg School of Management.
Some label them narcissistic, ungrateful and entitled, while others note them as tech savvy, family-centric and achievement-oriented. No matter the label, the Millennial, also known as Generation Y, worker is the fastest growing segment of today’s workforce. By 2025, they will make up 75% of the world’s workforce. As businesses compete for available talent, employers cannot ignore the needs, wants and attitudes of these young professionals, and bridging the generational gap is critical to running an effective organization. Dr. Schewe will take attendees on an entertaining journey through the generations to help organizations better understand the characteristics and values of today’s generation and how employers can adapt to successfully integrate these workers into the workforce. The ACCGS will also salute Friends of the Homeless on its 25th anniversary, welcome Kelly Services to the neighborhood as it moves into its downtown Springfield location and introduce you to Audrey Szychulski, the new executive director at the Springfield Symphony Orchestra.
Reservations are $20 for members, $30 for general admission.
