“Emerging adults” are identified as young men and women who are entering the work force while simultaneously crossing the threshold into adulthood. Engaged employers can build successful working relationships with them by looking for points of convergence and connection — where their development needs sync up with your business goals and priorities.

More Info

Arlene Hirsch is a graduate of Northwestern University and a recognized expert in the field of career psychology. She will discuss how to engage creatively with emerging adults so that they will grow professionally and beneficially to your company. Rotational assignments, stretching goals, and training opportunities will be explored as some of the ways to assist them in learning how to take on leadership roles and become committed to the longevity of your organization.
Arlene has found that emerging adults want meaningful work and crave feedback. They want to believe in a company that values their role and lets them know how they are doing. This makes for a mutually valuable relationship.
While employers may be reluctant to invest so much time and effort in developing a population that has been perceived to have a high turnover rate, by learning how to invest the time up front to show their work is valued and meaningful, you will have a greater chance of them staying the long term.

Tickets for this event are $15, and will be available for purchase at the door.
