"Keeping Young Professionals on the Western Slope"
Presented by the Colorado Mesa University SHRM Club Students
Join us to learn about how to successfully keep young professionals on the Western Slope!
During the WCHRA Fall Conference, the diversity panel provided insight into generational diversity in the workforce. The Grand Valley has an abundance of young professionals entering the workforce after graduating from CMU, but many of them move away shortly after graduation. This inspired the presenters to think of ways that businesses can keep young professionals in the Grand Valley. As two students who have entered the professional workforce through internships, the presenters have developed this program about what they value as employees and what they think are important concepts for employers to consider.
- Learn how to effectively communicate with young professionals in the workplace.
- Identify ways to show young professionals that they are valued members of your organization.
- Find opportunities for young professionals to have a seat at the table.
- Learn how to set young professionals up for success when starting an entry level position.
