Brent Robertson speaking at BootCamp 2016 Boston on how to successfully engage millennials

April 12, 2016  |  8:00am - 5:00pm

Engaging the Millennial Generation

The millennial generation has become a hot topic for the A/E/C industry for two key reasons:
  1. The industry is in desperate need of young, smart talent and is struggling with attracting and retaining millennials.
  2. The rhetoric surrounding this generation is doing nothing to encourage a useful dialogue, but instead is pushing the generations further apart.

The simple fact is if we remove generational labels and the assumptions attached to them, it becomes a conversation about how to engage our teams in a way that inspires them to deliver their best and not one about arguing over differences.

Designed for leaders who see that attracting and retaining top talent is vital to their firm’s success, this session will get behind the labels and expose a common and powerful attribute that ties every generation together. In addition, the session will explore key distinctions about the millennial generation that will provide attendees with a foundation for a more constructive dialogue between team members from different generations.

Attendees of this session will gain an understanding of:
  • A shared idea that holds all generations together
  • Powerful distinctions of the millennial generation that could be a source of innovation for your firm
  • The type of work environment millennials need to thrive
  • How to develop and mentor millennial team members
