Gill AldredSymposium Events have announced that Gill Aldred the Senior Director of Consulting Services, at Brookfield Global Relocation Services will be hosting the panel discussion at the forthcoming Expatriate Management and Global Mobility Forum 2013 taking place on the 9th July. The panel will examine the impact of millennials on expatriate policies.

Millennials, or Generation Y, is the generation born between approximately 1980 and 2000, further defined as entering the workplace beginning with the year 2000. A larger group than the immediately preceding Generation X, they are a seen as a diverse, technologically-savvy, connected and open-minded group who are reported to place great emphasis on personal development and work/life balance.

The ability of companies to understand what motivates and drives this group will be important if they are to attract and retain Millennial talent as it is estimated by some that by 2020 Millennials will form 50% of the global workforce.

The discussion will ask how do the experiences and perspectives of this demographic group impact their attitudes and expectations for an international component to their careers and in turn how does that impact their companies’ approach to international employee mobility?
