HR Leader: Millennials Helping to Shape Better Workplace

  • I chose this article because in the video it is mentioned how it is hard to recruit employees who have the talent that the organization wants, mainly because millennials are the ones who are applying for the job openings but not with enough background experience. WWT’s internship program teaches students things most would call common sense, like learning better face-to-face communication, keeping eye contact and being on time. Even though they are well-versed in social media and technology, some millennials in her experience need additional help working in a professional setting. Once they have some training, they excel in growth and leadership opportunities that bring fresh ideas and innovative visions to the table.
