Generation Y— often called Millennials—are the fastest growing segment in America’s workforce. Almost 80 million strong, they already comprise the entire 18-to-35 demographic. Along with their ever-present cell phones and new definition of “business casual,” they bring tremendous potential to the workplace (just ask, they’ll tell you). However, Generation Y’s approach to employment can make them a challenge for managers and executives to attract, retain, motivate, and develop.
In Y-Size Your Business, Jason Ryan Dorsey—The Gen Y Guy®—shows you why embracing Gen Y and Millennial employees gives you an immediate competitive advantage and positions your business for long-term growth.

He then reveals a step-by-step methodology for attracting, retaining, and motivating productive, high-performing Gen Y and Millennial employees—and how to do so without investing a lot of time or money.
