Motivating Millennials [eBook]

Our second eBook looks at the major benefits and challenges of the millennial generation (those born between 1980-2000) and explains how you can understand, motivate, recognize and engage your millennial workforce to help them surpass their goals.

A new generation is taking over the workplace. Are you prepared? Millennials will make up almost 50% of the global workforce in 2020 and 75% in 2025. What defines this generation and how are they motivated?

While parody songs and social media reports often label millennials as lazy, self-centered and disengaged, we believe that this generation will prove to be quite the opposite. In fact, we believe that Gen Y will be the most productive, service- oriented, technologically capable generation in history. So, we wrote this eBook to explain how you can understand, motivate, recognize and engage your millennial workforce to help them surpass their goals.

In this eBook, we explain how to understand, motivate, recognize and engage millennial employees so that they don’t just achieve the goals set for them, but are inwardly driven to surpass them.
