Susan Finch SLMA Radio Host and her Guest, Jaysen Greenleaf, VP of Business Development at RIO Genesis Software discussed both sides of recruiting great talent for your team and retaining them. They also dispelled myths about millennials, including thinking they are job hoppers.
In the first half of the show they discussed preparing for growth, where to find the talent and the value that younger team members can bring, especially fresh from college or another industry. They are a clean, tech-savvy, educated slate with strong entrepreneurial spirit.
Keeping people was the subject of the second half of the show.; specifically ways to KEEP them after you get them to your company. This includes the importance of weekly meetings, breaks from the office to change the scene and allow those in other departments to get to know each other. It's an enjoyable show.
