Join us for this 60 minute recorded webinar as Bryce Swerhun discusses recent research on younger workers and their engagement with the labour movement. Bryce discusses the current environment and ways to better connect with Millennials, including:
- Understanding the impact of the recent global economic downturn on Millennials, and how it effects youth employment experience and attitudes
- Placing more focus on “career-building” bargaining outcomes, such as training and skills development
- Recognizing that Millennials have a strong preference for easily quantifiable and tangible rewards, such as base pay and benefits
- Engaging in a more ‘open’ style of communication with managers
