• Media has mentioned them thousands of time: the “We” generation, the multi-task masters, the smartphone generations, etc. They are Millennials (or Generation Y – 1980s to early 2000s). They take up approximately 35% of current global workforce and are entitled to such characteristics as tech-savvy, change and purpose-driven or innovative. In Vietnam alone, young labour occupy nearly 30% of skilled workforce and this percentage is expected to increase even more rapidly as up to 2 million new graduates enter labour market each year.
• In this event, let’s zoom in this generation and learn some tactics in attracting, hiring and managing them in the workplace effectively.
