By 2025, over 75% of the workforce will be made up of millennials, and while that might be a scary thought for some, we shouldn’t fight it. Now is not the time to train millennials to think like the generations before them: it’s time for us to adapt our businesses to their needs.
What are the key differences between millennial agents and their predecessors? What is the incoming workforce expecting from their leaders, and how can we give it to them?
Can we pivot our existing business models to align with the future of the industry?
In this episode, Founder and CEO of Rokrbox, Josh Cunningham returns to the show to share how he’s built a millennial-centric business model.
Three Things You’ll Learn In This Episode
What makes millennial agents different from other generations Gone are the days when people got into a job and stayed in it for 40 years, right until retirement. The millennial workforce is looking for experiences and fulfillment, and our businesses need to give them that.
How to create a more millennial-friendly work environment The key to standing out to millennial recruits lies in having a deeper purpose. Our businesses need to have a why and deeper meaning if we want to capture the attention of the younger workforce.
Why we need to change the way we think about retention As team leaders, many of us have a goal of retaining all our recruits, but we shouldn’t. Instead, we should be building a culture of success that encourages agents to keep pushing themselves to new heights, even if that means leaving our organizations.
Josh Cunningham is the Founder and CEO of Rokrbox, an ISA company dedicated to both calling and nurturing leads. Josh’s team consists of all millennials, and because of that, he’s learned how to create a workplace that appeals to the incoming workforce. Featured at previous Team Building Summits for his expertise working with millennials, Josh will return to the event in 2021 as a keynote speaker.
