Free workshop focuses on millennials in the workforce

The Employee Training Institute, the corporate training division of the region’s community colleges, including Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges in the East County, is offering “Retaining and Managing the Millennial Generation,” a free workshop for HR professionals and business managers, from 8-10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27, at the Corporate Education Center on the San Diego City College campus.

The workshop, the first of a series launched for 2015-16 to promote corporate training services available through the region’s community colleges, is designed for managers to learn how to maximize the strengths and contributions of millennials, and to learn how HR practices can be updated to best suit a multi-generational workforce. Millennials now make up the majority of the workforce and while they bring fresh new skills and aptitudes to companies, they also present distinct HR and management challenges.

The workshop covers such topics as:

  • Motivating millennials and other multi-generational employees to increase productivity, engagement and loyalty
  • Supervisory strategies for HR professionals to share with their workplace leaders and managers
  • The eight different ways of thinking and processing information to make it easier to complete and delegate tasks
The workshop, which will be preceded by a 7:30-8 a.m. breakfast, will be led by Jennifer Hamilton, whose business career has included consulting at Pricewaterhousecoopers (PwC), and teaching and training professionals as an instructor for the California Department of Education, DeVry University’s Becker CPA Review, and Grossmont College. As CEO of the Institute for Mastering Success, she specializes in training managers and staff in professional and technical fields.

The Corporate Education Center is at 1551 C Street, San Diego CA 92101, Building # MS-162.

Online registration for this workshop is available. Call 619-388-1250 for further information.
