Re/freSH Virtual Event: Millennials in the Workplace


Now more than ever, market leaders need leading talent with 21st century skills.  

Yet every day, there are countless options for Millennials to find financial return outside of a traditional organizational structure. With Millennials choosing alternative paths or entrepreneurship, how can organizations attract and develop talent? What does retention look like with a generation that expects to have multiple jobs in their lifetime? How has global connectivity and cultural exchange played a major role in their mindset and success? What is the winning formula for organizations in the 21st century?


Join us for the ground-breaking virtual event Re/freSH: Millennials in the Workplace. An online event series inviting an open exchange of ideas between business and the next generation of leading talent.


Our focus for this event is on the value of international experience in a globally connected world brought to you by International Experience Canada.
