The Millennials are coming, the Millennials are coming!
With that in mind, how can we attract, assimilate and retain the Millennials into our trades? Attract is the front door of your company. It’s what you have to do to bring them in. Retain is the back door of your company. It’s whatever happened that allowed you to lose an employee. Assimilate means how well you keep people from coming through the front door and not going out the back door. If you don’t assimilate well, the back door is as wide as the front door and used just as often.
