During our conversation, Javier talks about the two most important forces behind every Millennial decision – priorities and purpose – and reveals how leaders can leverage the power and potential of this undervalued workforce.
- What leaders can do to attract and engage a younger workforce
- Why your purpose should be the company tagline
- Centering your hiring process on core values
- Defining long-term vision (and how to put it into practice)
