Workshop 1 – How To Successfully Recruit & Retain Millennials

Building A Millennial-Friendly Company Culture

In part one of this workshop, we will cover how to build a millennial-friendly work culture. Millennials are often attracted to the influencer culture and entrepreneurship. If you understand what makes those cultures attractive to millennials, you will be able to create a culture of “intra-preneurship” within your company. Here are the topics that we will cover in this workshop:

  • The difference between three dominant work cultures of our time:
    • Corporate Culture
    • Start up Culture
    • Influencer Cutlure
  • Why company culture has become so important to millennials
  • Defining your company’s “WHY” and making your team feel a part of it.
  • Building a genuinely diverse culture
  • Putting flexibility at the heart of your workflow
  • Putting sustainability and the environment on top of your agenda
  • Understanding what millennials are looking for

Attracting Top Millennial Talent To Your Brand

In part two of the workshop we will discuss how to elevate your brand’s perception and communicate your company culture with the new generation of the workforce. We do this through marketing techniques that are specifically designed to engage with potential talent. This is a different kind of marketing to what you would do for your customers. It’s about setting your company executives and ambassadors as thought leaders in the industry. Here is what we will cover in this workshop:

  • Building your company leaders’ personal brand on social media in a dignified way
  • Making the application process digital first, super easy, and user-friendly
  • Integrating social media into your application process
  • Getting to the bottom of your applicant’s true intention – is this a job, a career, or a calling?
  • Finding out if they are entrepreneurs at heart
  • If they have or want to have a side hustle, having an open conversation about it to decide if this is for you
  • Hiring well, but not getting too attached
  • Communicating what they will learn and achieve beyond compensation for their time and effort.
