Think Millennials won’t affect your business? Think again.
Cessnock City Council is urging local business owners to attend a FREE workshop aimed at breaking down barriers between Cessnock’s workforce and millennials, generating opportunity for young people and business.
Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said the Millennials Workshop is a unique opportunity for the community as a whole to address high rates of youth unemployment plaguing the Hunter.
“It is vital we understand the generation that will make up our future workforce and inform ourselves of the different challenges they face”.
“We know youth unemployment is a serious issue in our local government area, as is under-employment which is often not reflected in statistics”.
“All levels of government need to be working towards a solution in collaboration with local business”, Cr Pynsent said.
The workshop will not only provide insight into Millennials but on how generational change will affect all businesses.
Social researcher and popular media commentator Claire Madden will share her knowledge on the impacts of generational change and provide practical advice for business.
The workshop will highlight how businesses can attract a new generation of customers and employees, explore the changing demographics of the Hunter region and present opportunities for collaborative use of technology and innovation to successfully engage future customers.
