Topic: Keys to Employing and Educating Millennials
Description: The Millennial generation is rapidly gaining dominance in the workplace. Nearly a third of the current workforce was born after 1986. By the year 2020 the percentage will be closer to 50%. This generation is very different from the preceding generations. These younger employees feel and think very differently about life, work and education. Many organizations have tried to ignore the differences and treat millennials the same as previous generations with disappointing results. However, organizations that accept the differences and adapt to them are reaping the rewards. Flexibility and accommodation is needed by both the millennial employees and the organization. Millennials represent an opportunity for Continuing Education organizations not only as employees but as customers. CE courses marketed to organizations that need help in adapting to the Millennial generation have great current market potential.
This presentation will focus on capitalizing on the differences of the Millennial generation for the Continuing Education department that both employs them as well as provides services to them as customers.
Presenter: Marv Meissner, Director of Continuing and Professional Education for SUNY Polytechnic Institute
Originally educated as an engineer with a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering Marv rounded out his education with a M.B.A. from Syracuse University. During a long and successful career in manufacturing Marv held positions in engineering, production management, education and training and quality assurance. He then, for several years. consulted and was a trainer for a national business training organization before starting a new career in higher education. During his career Marv hired and managed many dozen employees. He became fascinated with the factors that motivated employees and early this century focused on the millennial generation as it began to enter the workforce. Observing the differences in this generation, Marv has been researching the topic ever since. He has helped several organizations to devise successful strategies to make the most of employing millennial workers.
