One of the biggest challenges faced by business owners today is attracting and retaining great people. Millennials (those 18–34 year old) make up an enormous part of today’s workforce and survey after survey finds that this generation values flexibility as much and sometimes more than compensation.

What technologies, devices, policies and best practices are smart business people using to give their employees (and independent contractors) the freedom to work from anywhere while not compromising security and performance?



During this entertaining and fast moving session Gene will touch on some of the most important employee related issues in your company including:

  • How trends and regulations in minimum wage, paid time off, and overtime will impact your ability to find and motivate millennial employees.

  • Key issues that need to be addressed in your employee handbook.

  • Innovative perks and benefits the big companies offer that you can too.

  • The benefits, costs, risks and rewards of outsourcing, including the latest technology tools to manage your outsourced contractors.

  • The newest and innovative cloud based technologies that are helping companies of all sizes recruit, manage, compensate and make them more attractive to the millennial workforce.

  • A review of the most recent legislation regarding retirement plans.

  • The latest developments in healthcare reform that are most important to millennials and how smart employers are controlling their healthcare costs in 2017 while continuing to be competitive in the job market.
