Registration is from 7:30 - 8:00 A.M.| Continental Breakfast for Attendees

The US economy is experiencing a dramatic shift in the demand for hourly workers coinciding with a shift in the generational workforce. While blue collar jobs are shrinking, pink collar jobs are surging.

Meanwhile, the workforce is graying, and Millennials are increasingly uninterested and ill equipped for jobs like these. Each year, 20 million Millennials are hired into the workforce, but fewer and fewer have the necessary skills or desire for hourly or technically skilled jobs. 

Managing these demographic and generational challenges is an imperative for employers in industries that employ hourly workers.  How can employers get ahead of these trends? How can companies effectively recruit and retain the next generation of workers?

Join generational expert and speaker Warren Wright, as he shares new research on hourly workers and managing the Millennial generation. Warren Wright is one of the leading authorities on the Millennial generation, speaking and consulting frequently on their influence in the workplace and society at large. He will discuss how to best communicate between the generations to elicit more productivity and harmony in the workplace. Participants will learn how to adapt their management styles to engage Millennials and improve outcomes across the board. Warren will also discuss how employers can refine their recruiting and retention practices to align with the interests and expectations of this incoming  workforce.

Return to event:



Warren has been the keynote speaker at large conferences for corporations, associations and the U.S. Military, solving problems for clients for over 25 years. He started the training organization, Coaching Millennials, in response to an overwhelming demand by companies to help hire and manage Millennials. He collaborates frequently on generational research with economist and historian Neil Howe, the best-selling author on today's generations, who gave Millennials their name. Warren was a principal and co-founder of the internet start up, which was sold in 2000, after which he went on to lead Gallup's largest consulting division for ten years.
