How to Keep Millennials From Getting Bored and Quitting

Question: I’m having challenges with attracting and retaining younger employees. Do you have any thoughts about keeping millennials interested and challenged so they don’t jump ship after 18 months on the job?

Answer: millennials—those born between about 1980 and 2000—are the largest U.S. generation since the baby boomers. Simply by virtue of their numbers, they are poised to make up 75 percent of the U.S. workforce by 2025. So learning how to work with them and keep them on staff should be an important goal for every employer.
