Training Millennial

Millennials now hold one in every three American jobs, and with this new wave of workers comes a new philosophy for training them. In our roles, we are often called on to develop and facilitate courses where millennial learners are our audience. During this session, we explore strategies and tools to train the millennial population. You will walk away with tips on how to engage millennials and things to avoid in your training programs.
