How millennials in leadership are shaking up L & D

Zunos

They browsed the web on Internet Explorer and were just beginning to fill out their MySpace profiles. They take the inspirational TED Talks, and the information YouTube videos and they incorporate them into their training programs. It's at this point in a training program where organizations can and should create something new. Millennials are old news. When the first of this generation hit the workforce almost 15 years ago, most of them were using a Hotmail email address.
