The most successful businesses are the ones that are able to attract and retain the most talented employees. To do this, managers must understand what motivates millennial employees, simply because millennials will play an increasingly central role - it is estimated that by 2025, millennials will make up 75% of the workforce.

Managers often need to use their leadership skills to ensure the success of their team,but often do not have clear and up to date knowledge, particularly in relation to the millennials in their team, who have a very different life experience and approach to older staff members. 

This course will use best practice and research on those differences, framed in a way that links to the different elements of your day to day role as a manager and helps you to provide an environment where talented and motivated young employees can thrive alongside the rest of the team.

You will come away with an awareness of best practice in relation to your role as a line manager, with clear ideas on the differences between older employees and those of the millennial generation. 

You will leave with a nine-point practical action plan on how to bring out the best in your younger workforce, and ensure that their innovation is integrated into your overall business.
