We’re not here to talk about “Working” with Millennials; we’re talking about “Winning” with them.

Summary: So who are these so-called ”Millennials”? What makes them tick? Are they really as bad as what we hear? Is there any hope for our design industry moving forward? While we all hear design firm leaders across the country complain about today’s generation, there is also a handful of company leaders who are recognizing their value and harnessing their energy. As a result, their firms are growing faster than the industry as a whole, while also experiencing stellar financial returns on their investment.

In Cracking The Millennial Code: Unleashing The Power Of Today’s Generation Of Young Professionals, Tim not only provides practical strategies to attract the best and brightest millennials to your design firm, but also presents  a clear picture of how the generation now entering the workforce thinks, acts, and lives. He explores some of the issues that have shaped their thinking, and how firms cannot leverage this generation to maximize firm success. Topics covered include:

  • What are Millennials?

  • Environmental influences on Millennials

  • Defining characteristics of Millennials

  • How to build a performance-driven culture around your Millennials

Speaker bio:  As a PSMJ consultant, Tim Griffin has published numerous management articles and trained hundreds of design firm principals across North America in best business practices. He also authored the best-selling book Winning With Millennials: Attracting, Retaining, and Empowering the Next Generation of Design Firm Professional. Tim is a Partner and Branch Manager with RMF Engineering, Inc., an engineering consulting firm that works internationally. He is a registered professional engineer and certified energy manager with a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering from North Carolina State University, and a master’s degree in business administration from Colorado State University.
