Next Generation Engagement
THE PROBLEM: One of the greatest talent challenges currently facing employers is engaging the Millennial generation, who recently became the largest share of the U.S. labor market. The absence of Millennial loyalty and engagement, represents a serious threat to the longevity of any business.
THE SOLUTION: A war on talent has begun as 80 million Millennials continue to pour into the workplace. Organizations must battle competitors and the entrepreneurial ambition of Millennials to attract today’s top talent. Due to technology and a challenging economy, Millennials have developed a unique view of career and success at work. Engaging Millennials will help organizations avoid the $25,000 average cost to replace a single Millennial employee and build a strong bench of future leaders.
Why Book Ryan Jenkins?
Ryan began work as a sales professional in the technology industry after graduating from Miami University (OH) with a degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. As a Millennial himself, it didn’t take long for him to notice and experience first-hand the friction between generations in the workplace.
To better understand this workplace issue, Ryan began extensively researching, collaborating with industry experts, and interviewing hundreds of Millennials to better understand their behavior, strengths, employer expectations, and career desires.
This led Ryan to launch a blog in 2012 and a podcast in 2013 focused on helping leaders and organizations to better understand the emerging generations so they can better lead, engage, and sell to Millennials and Generation Z. Today, Ryan’s content reaches 1,000s of people every week.
In 2015, Ryan became a columnist for Inc.com. His column, Next Generation Insights, reaches 100,000s of people every month.
In 2016, Ryan and his business partners launched 21Mill, the first ever micro-learning platform designed specifically to develop Millennials. 21Mill offers a proven and effective way to develop any company’s Millennial workforce.
When Ryan is not speaking or writing you can find him religiously cheering on the Denver Broncos with his wife Ashley, daughter Ella, and yellow labrador Bauer from their home in Atlanta, GA. Ryan also enjoys sampling craft beer from around the US, traveling, reading, restaurant hopping, and Netflix binge-watching.
