With 80 million millennials and counting, young people have begun to enter the workplace in full force, many being promoted to middle management out of necessity and before they're ready.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 19, 2014
ExactSource, a national leader in the delivery of talent management solutions and software to architectural, engineering, and construction firms, is hosting the next webinar in their ExactAcademy series on Thursday, August 21, 2014 at 2pm eastern time. The free webinar, "Developing Young Leaders," will feature Jim Krug as the guest speaker.
The webinar will focus on the necessity of developing the next generation of young leaders. In the highly interactive 45-minute webinar, viewers will learn why an A/E/C firm should invest in young leader development, how a firm should approach this development, and steps to take in order to avoid future skills gaps.
"With 80 million millennials and counting, young people have begun to enter the workplace in full force, many being promoted to middle management out of necessity and before they're ready," says Sarah Walpert, Director of Marketing and Communications at ExactSource, "It is important for A/E/C firms to invest in these employees' training and development to avoid skills and leadership gaps as the Baby Boomers retire in the next decade."
The webinar is available at no charge to professionals in the A/E/C industry, and is especially relevant for human resources professionals, middle to upper management, and decision makers in A/E/C firms. Not only will there be a discussion on the next generation of leaders, but participants will be guided through steps to begin the leadership development process. This webinar will be conversational in format and questions, and comments from the audience are highly encouraged throughout the presentation.
