Millennials in the Workforce
As both a millennial herself and someone who has employed hundreds of millennials, Kristen Hadeed challenges and debunks stereotypes about her generation with stories from her own experience. Her company has a retention rate that beats the industry standard by a landslide. A departure from the stereotypical status quo, Student Maid’s millennial employees are hardworking, dedicated and engaged – even though cleaning dirty toilets is in the job description. Despite the unglamorous line of work, millennials are lining up to be part of the company. In this keynote, Kristen offers practical tools to bridge the generational gap and create an environment where everyone thrives.
