The “workplace” is a relatively modern concept. Service industries have only truly grown over the past five decades; small-scale manufacturers are radically different than the factories of the late 19th century. With the dual rise of the Millennial Generation and the widespread adoption of technology, the workplace is going through a new adaptation. Join guest speaker, Morgan Smith, as he discusses these three key areas:
  1. Management techniques + interpersonal relationships.  How can managers best capitalize on their workers' talents?  How can they attract high-level workers?  How can they retain high-level workers?
  2. Use of technology and place.  Is it necessary to force a worker to sit at a desk 9-to-5 at a set workplace since they can do everything you need (besides face time, and even that's changing) in a coffee shop?  How can small businesses capitalize on the evolution of the workplace?
  3. Expectations and purpose of work / life.  How can companies offer the best "set-up" for young talent?  How can businesses best engage Millennials?  What are Millennials actually searching for in work?
