Description

By 2050, millennials will account for half of the global workforce. As such, it is increasingly imperative for managers to understand this subset of employees in order to be an effective leader and, importantly, retain the high achievers. 

Sharing the recent findings from FTI Consulting’s survey of over 4,000 millennials across four countries, Leslie Benson, Global Head of Employee Engagement and Change Communications, will discuss who the high achieving millennial is and how best to understand, motivate, and ultimately retain this next generation of business leaders.
