The Generational Shift: Creating a Culture of Recruiting, Hiring, Onboarding, and Retaining in the Digital Age

Presented by: Step Back Leadership Consulting LLC — Founder, Jason Barger

Generations are shifting and millennials are the largest in the U.S. labor force today. And, if you’ve noticed a difference, you’re not alone—many industries are experiencing a talent shortage. In a “side hustle” society and a culture where the workforce places higher value on flexibility and life experiences, finding and keeping talent is critical. If you’re still putting a “Hiring” sign in your window and waiting for the resumes to come pouring in, then you’re not even playing the same game as those who are looking for a job. This session dives into proven tips in today’s world to recruit, hire, onboard, and retain talent in a Digital Age and purpose-driven world. The best organizations shape their cultures intentionally by bringing in and growing ambassadors for their brands. This engaging session will be led by Jason Barger, globally celebrated author of Thermostat Cultures and founder of Step Back Leadership Consulting, and he will be joined by one of his team members, Stefanie Jackson, researcher and generational expert.
