About this workshop
Millennials (those born after 1980) now make up a quarter of the UK population and are the largest generation in history. They are however often poorly characterized as narcissistic, afraid of hard work and overly optimistic.
In fact, the opposite is true; they are incredibly entrepreneurial, creative, value-driven and better educated and travelled than their parents. Like every generation before them, they have been shaped by events and circumstances which determines their attitudes on everything from promotion at work to preventative healthcare, from access to news to saving and taxation.
This course will seek to demystify the Millennial Generation; their understanding as citizens, employees and consumers. What are their core values and how does this shape their attitude towards brands, the work place and politics? Given they have clear priorities, how can businesses best appeal to them as consumers (both on-line and off-line)?
The average Millennial changes job every two years, what can companies do to manage Millennials and secure their loyalty? The recent Brexit vote revealed a ‘generation gap’ within politics; can we detect such a ‘gap’ in the workplace, and if so, how can this be addressed? What are the different groups within this generational cohort and how do UK Millennials differ from those across the globe?
These questions and much more will be answered over the course of this one-day workshop which will be essential for all those invested in the future of work and consumption.
