Millennials, are those born between 1980 and 2000. They are projected to make up 75 percent of the workforce by 2025. As more baby boomers retire, no longer are millennials the workers of the future; instead, they are the leaders of today.

Millennials grew up watching their parents, some of whom have been at organizations for decades, get laid off or demoted during the recession. As a result, they tend to resent traditional career ladders and companies that base promotions and raises on tenure rather than skills and talent. If your company offers few or no internal advancement opportunities, employees that began in entry-level roles may look elsewhere after they have gained a year or two of experience. 

What can you DO to help fight hiring costs and retain your millennial workforce? We have put together a document with studies that have been conducted on this topic and some helpful tips to get you started. Download it HERE
