Keynote for Business / Industry Groups

This presentation, based on a research study funded by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Workforce Developments Board, explores the differences in generations and the implications for education and the workforce.  The society that raised each generation has contributed to their unique set of characteristics.  The millennial generation is the generation of children born between 1982 and 2002, some 81 million children who have already begun to enter the workforce.  This generation will replace the Baby-boomers as they retire.  The millennials have a different set of work and life values than previous generations.

This presentation is designed as a 1.5 - 2 hour staff development session to help employers understand the characteristics of the millennials, observations about those already in the workforce and strategies for the future.
