Engaging a Generational Workforce: A Conversation on Attracting & Retaining Young Talent

Young professionals make up more than 50% of the global workforce, however, retaining young talent has been a struggle for employers across all industries.

Join the TAPPI Young Professionals Division as we explore the multifaceted topic of retaining young talent within the paper, pulp and packaging industry through a moderated panel and Q&A session.

Key insight from a survey sent to young professionals in the paper, pulp and packaging industry on industry retention will be presented.  Attendees will leave with data and ideas that can be applied on an individual or company-wide basis. This session is perfect for young professionals, managers working with or trying to recruit young professionals, and human resource professionals.
