Most importantly, we will discuss several proven methods for reaching the Millennials, and the newest generation that is just emerging in our work lives. This session will provide you with:

  • A strategic understanding of multiple the issues on the horizon.
  • An understanding of what a modern organization's compensation and benefits strategies should look like.

  • Strategies to address the challenges with advanced communication methods.
  • Survey data from several organizational strategy resources, advanced communication methods from the surprising world of marketing and sales, and advanced metrics to measure success (or failure) with.
