And with not enough headcount to fill labor force demands of educated professionals, retaining this generation will be critical to a company's growth and success.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) May 5, 2009
New workforce dynamics emerge as the US enters into a labor shortage era of historical magnitude - estimated at 35 million skilled and educated workers starting now and lasting for 2 decades. Combine this fact with Gen X being a smaller generation, and the Boomers' mass retirement trend, and it results in companies having to move Millennials (aka Gen Y) into management roles sooner. To address these workplace shifts, Lisa Orrell, The Generations Relations Expert, and executive leadership expert, Camille Smith, President of Work In Progress Coaching, have launched a new corporate training program.
The "Transitioning to Leadership Program: How to Effectively Move Your Gen Y Employees Into Leadership Roles", is a 2-phased program for Millennial employees and their employers. It combines a series of workshops, seminars, and coaching that is focused not only on helping Millennials become effective leaders at work quickly, but to give their supervisors the insights and tools to support their growth and transitioning.
"Camille has 25-years of experience coaching and training executives to be exceptional leaders," says Lisa Orrell. "And with my experience educating leadership and management teams about what makes Millennials tick, it made perfect sense for us to join forces and create this unique program together. Plus, Millennials welcome, require, and often demand, training, coaching and mentorship - more so than most generations before them."
"Our program can also increase the odds of an employer retaining their Millennial talent. This is key because as the economy improves, the aggressive recruiting efforts for Millennials will boom again," explains Camille Smith, co-facilitator of the program. "And with not enough headcount to fill labor force demands of educated professionals, retaining this generation will be critical to a company's growth and success."
