Update from Steve Krueger, Appleton Chapter Lead:
Great session for the Millennial Panel at UWO Appleton Executive Education Center bringing together the Green Bay and Appleton PNW groups.
Many thanks to Don Noskowiak for coordinating this event and Chad Kopitzke from NeXtGen Advantage for facilitating today’s discussion.
Chad was joined by Jennifer Vander Loop, Ross Kornowski and Jenna Theil to discuss the Millennial generation and answer questions from the participants.
My key takeaways were:
Set expectations – your expectations of the employee and their expectations of you the employer – and continue to discuss
“You are here” – letting them know where they are in their path to achieving their goals and your goals
Share with them why you do what you do to build loyalty verses just doing the work – why is this work important, what impact does it have.
Include employees in meetings and decisions verses telling them what to do – they want to be involved, add value, etc.
Coach don’t manage
Feedback – more than once a year review – connect every few weeks on how things are going.
We had two first time attendees:
Jonny Richard from Ameriprise Financial
Matt Wilcox with WBD
