The First 90-Days: Take Young Professionals from New Hire to Peak Performer
Wednesday, May 8, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (EDT)
Whether you brand our newest generation of young professionals creative, collaborative and tech savvy; disrespectful, entitled and downright whiny—or something in between—their success in the workplace will determine whether our nation’s recent economic crises are footnotes in history or reoccurring themes.
Here are a few statistics to consider:
- By 2014 Millennials (Gen Y) will comprise 50% of the workforce.
- 46% of the people hired will fail in the first 18 months on the job.
- The cost of turnover is “14 times the base salary for those earning under $100K.”
Statistics pulled from Tony Bingham, President of the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), Mark Murphy’s “Hiring for Attitude” and Michael Watkins’ “The First 90 Days” respectively.
