Event description



delivered by Dr. Debashish Sengupta

By 2025, millennials also known as the Generation Y, born between 1980 and 1996, will make up roughly 75% of the world’s workforce. By 2028, the last of the boomers will be reaching retirement age, Millennials will make up roughly three-quarters of the work force by this time and the oldest millennial, will be still quite young at just 47, will be entering leadership position. Are organizations ready for this burgeoning new generation that is entering the workforce in large numbers? Do they have leadership style and organizational design to engage them? Facts suggest on the contrary, most companies are struggling to keep the millennial workers happy and engaged. The 2016 millennial survey by Deloitte on India has alarming news for companies. By 2020, majority of the millennial or Gen Y workers are likely to change their companies. The survey also points to the fact that this lack of loyalty may be a sign of neglect that millennials might be facing in their organisation.


The training workshop based program focuses on a comprehensive understanding of what millennial engagement entails. The key takeaway for participants would be a thorough understanding of the practice of engagement, and the ability to leverage organizational design and leadership style for engaging millennials at workplace. The program will focus on mapping the association between millennial employee engagement across functions and the pursuit of business strategy. In doing so, participants will work as teams in engineering leadership styles and organizational design, and employ it to realize strategic objectives. Millennial engagement is a function of understanding of this cohort. Understanding how their behaviours are different and more importantly why they behave differently, why their mind-sets are different, goes a long way in charting an appropriate leadership style that better suits in leading millennials. The sessions will also explore how engagement within a firm can be scripted as a default initiative via an engagement enabling design. Structure, reward systems, and culture issues entrenched within organizational design will be studied. The challenge of engagement measurement is universal. Thus understanding value from the perspective of employee as a proposition will also be explored as part of the program.

Moreover, focus will also be on identifying millennial employee pain-points to craft episodic engagement initiatives that deliver.
