"Millennials in OUR Workplace"

Abstract:

Millennials became the majority generation in the workforce in 2015. Countless books, TED talks, surveys and articles are discussing the topic of millennials and how their presence is changing the way the office looks, feels, and functions. However, in our bill-your-time industry of deadlines, task orders, and low-bids, the “google-standard” office dynamic seems impossible to replicate. Join Jeremy Deischer and Jeff Wulliman of the CASFM YMG as they provide perspective on published material and review the results of their own millennial retention survey sent out in the Summer of 2016. This presentation is the first step to answering the larger question – what does millennial retention look like in our industry?

Speaker Bios:

Jeremy Deischer is a Project Engineer at ICON Engineering. Jeremy has worked for ICON for just over 3 years after graduating from CU Denver. He spends most of his time at ICON working on master planning studies and developing technical models. After networking with other members of the recently founded CASFM YMG he become intrigued to learn more about millennials in workplace. He hopes that this presentation and subsequent research will assist both employers and employees in making the workplace better for everyone.

Jeff Wulliman is a Civil E.I.T. working at Muller Engineering in their new Program Management Group. He spends his time helping manage the Permanent Flood Recovery efforts on US 34 from Loveland to Estes Park. He can’t believe it’s already 2017, and is really looking forward to taking the PE in April (or, rather, looking forward to saying he has, in past tense, taken the PE in April). He is passionate about improving the workplace for everyone and hopes that this presentation will serve as the start to that conversation.
