Using Technology to Engage and Train Millennials!

June 21, 2017
11:00 a.m. CDT

There seems to be a stigma around training millennials (those born between 1980 and 2000, give or take a few years). Millennials are thought to be hard to engage and even harder to keep interested because of their perceived need for instant gratification and short attention spans. Although this generation may be wired differently than earlier generations that didn’t grow up immersed in technology, it doesn’t mean they’re untrainable. 

In fact, it may surprise you to learn: 
  • Most millennials WANT training from their employers. 
  • Regular training is one of the best ways to reduce turnover and boost productivity in millennial employees. 
As with any group, though, knowing your audience, tailoring training content and offering options when it comes to delivery will lead to a more successful outcome. 

In this webinar, we will cover: 
  • Demystifying millennials - statistics and key characteristics of millennials in the workforce and how these can affect training. 
  • Content is king – methods and strategies for making and/or choosing content that counts and how to use technology to grab and keep millennials’ interest. 
  • If you can reach them, you can teach them - why delivery methods matter and what training methods work best with millennials.

Chuck Smith may be the only temp ever who bought his agency.Charles Smith NewHire
With a Master’s Degree from the University of Chicago’s Divinity School in hand and few job prospects, Smith went looking for work in 1988. He answered a classified ad placed by a new temp agency looking for skilled workers. On his second temp assignment he was sent home from the job before it started because “the old geezers you’d be working for expect a skirt outside their door.” -- This according to the Office Manager for a large architectural firm in downtown Chicago.
Undeterred, Smith went on temping at ad agencies, newspapers, and other architects. Next it was on to radio fame as a guest on Cathy O’Malley’s WGN radio program, appearing as the “male secretary” along with a female firefighter in a show dedicated to the changing workplace.
Fast forward 25 years, Smith now owns and operates NewHire. NewHire provides the candidates, hiring tools and coaching to help small & mid-sized business hire better. 
Chuck has interviewed more than 20,000 candidates for work, helping more than 4,000 people get jobs. His 25 years of recruiting & management experience make him a sought-after speaker by business owners, consultants and industry leaders alike. 
Chuck holds a Bachelor's Degree from the George Washington University and a Masters Degree from the University of Chicago Divinity School. He and his wife/business partner have two children, and have been actively involved in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood for over 20 years.
