Holiday Stress!The Challenge: Cut the high cost of turnover in your Gen Y workforce

According to the Urban Dictionary, "Millennials, otherwise known as Generation Y, are people born between the years of 1980 and 1995." They're extremely tech-savvy. They live on Facebook and other social media. And they get bored very easily.

The 60 Second Solution:
Dr. Jan Farri-Reed, co-author of Keeping the Millennials: Why companies are losing billions in turnover to this generation and what to do about it, has identified 10 "cool" factors that are essential for attracting and retaining top talent--especially young talent.

Does your company have these cool factors?
  1. Fun work environment with social networking
  2. Creative communications
  3. Feedback and recognition systems
  4. State-of-the-art technology
  5. Creative perks
  6. Corporate values
  7. Redesigned cubical workspace
  8. Workspace flexibility
  9. Competitive compensation and benefits packages
  10. Career development opportunities
Read on for an example of how Heartland Restaurants has embraced the "cool factor" and is attracting and retaining top young talent...
