During these challenging times, all we hear is how we’re living and working in a new normal – the things that worked in the past can’t be counted on to take us into the future. This is particularly relevant when it comes to engaging and retaining our young workforce. The Millennials, those 20-somethings in your office, are wired for the future trying to stand out in organizations steeped in the past.

Do you know what you need to do to capitalize on their talents? Can you afford to lose the best they have to offer?
