Communication is at the Core of Success

It’s common to struggle with how to manage millennials in the workplace. They have communication demands distinct from other groups – and which savvy managers must understand if they’re to form successful working relationships.

Millennials are attracted by visually-rich content, delivered in compelling ways, using contemporary technology. Failing to communicate with them in this way is to invite a disrupted workplace and missed opportunities.
