HR Forum – Getting the best out of a young workforce

Course Summary

By 2025 millennials will represent 50% of the UK Workforce. This workshop will look at what Millennials bring to the workplace and how best to harness their talents to both optimise their performance and ensure companies remain competitive and innovative.

The session will give delegates an insight into the topics covered in the GTA’s newly revised course, The World of Work (WOW) which helps young workers to adapt to the working world and to develop their knowledge and skills in the workplace.


How are today’s younger workers perceived in the workplace? What really matters to millennials (and the emerging Generation Z of new workers)? What are the challenges for young workers beginning their careers and what are the challenges for employers? Using our own experience of a younger workforce, alongside research evidence, we will take a closer look at what is happening and consider the principles and some of the strategies that are most likely to motivate and encourage this workforce. We will also take a look at some of the learning points for this generation in understanding the culture of an organisation and expectations of them as young professionals.
