Millennials at work (and now Gen Z employees), are a natural part of today’s workplace.
Corporate trainer and CTI-educated executive coach Bruce Mayhew delivers Multigenerational Workforce training in throughout Canada and the USA. We are in the remarkable people business... we offer solutions, not 'canned' services.

The ‘Millennials in the Workplace’ survey we produced at Bruce Mayhew Consulting identifies 65.38% of our Millennial participants would prefer to stay with one company for at least 5 years. Unfortunately, 50% expect to change jobs in the next 2 years or less. Why? Mostly because their leaders don't offer advancement options.
Who Should Attend Millennials In The Workplace Training?
All business professionals who work with individuals from different generations and/or cultures. Professionals who lead a multigenerational workforce want to be more confident hiring, motivating and retaining employees... especially Millennials At Work.
Generational differences training which now includes working with Generation Z employees (also known as iGeneration, Centennials or Post-Millennials), prepares employees and leaders to manage diversity in the workplace. Bruce Mayhew Consulting gets immediate results because we use stories to turn information into actionable skills and benefits.

Generational Differences Training Tips
Training Tip #1
We work in an multigenrational world. With four generations in the workplace a leadership style that inspires, motivates and mentors has never been more important. Intergenerational leadership includes everyone and cares for everyone. Great leaders create great teams - and this results in happy employees and happier customers.
Training Tip #2
Millennials want clear instructions about what their leaders want – but they want to complete the task their own way... and as long as it stays on time and on budget and follows the organizational values - why not? The key to managing and retaining Millennials in the workplace is to make their work relevant and important. When they are engaged and feel their contribution makes a difference, they will be loyal and work hard.
Training Tip #3
It's no longer possible to keep doing what we have been doing in the past and expect other people and especially other generations to be motivated by the same things we are. For example, Baby Boomers are traditionally motivated by money and recognize status and hierarchy. Millennials want work/life balance, opportunity to better themselves and they want to know they are doing meaningful work. The best way to know who to motivate and reward your employees is not to look inward - but to ask each person... "What is important to you?"
The exact years of a Millennial changes depending on what country they are from and some cultural differences, however generally, Millennials (Generation Y) are born between 1978 - 2000.
A high-level Millennials definition should begin with their familiar reputation for being lazy which isn’t as valid as most believe. What they do want is interesting work and to know they are making a difference. Millennials have been told by their parents that they can do anything and that everyone has a valid opinion. So, if you are a Boomer or Gen X parent and employer, you now know why Millennials in the workplace are not shy and expect their opinions to be heard.
There is much more that goes into the Millennials definition and knowing how to manage, motivate and retain them. Please contact us to learn more about the generational differences of Millennials, Gen X and Boomers and how to create work/life balance and productivity; we can help.
