How to Get the Most Out of the Millennial Workforce

The generation gap continues to be a challenge for managers and leaders but the types of challenges are changing. In 2015, millennials became the largest generation in the workforce and they aren’t going anywhere.  In this session, I will tell you why millennials make the best auditors, from a millennial point of view. This session will explore the research on millennials, why they are getting a bad reputation and how to use their traits to your advantage in internal audit. Many of the characteristics that make millennials who they are also relate to very strong internal auditors.  This session will discuss the key traits that make millennials who they are, and how to properly manage and motivate them to be invaluable members of your team. Millennial key traits: 1. They are the most highly educated generation ever 2. Tech savvy 3. They are not afraid to challenge the status quo 4. Team oriented, results driven, multi-taskers 5. They are driven by things other than money – they want to grow and develop and learn.
