March 8, 2017 Meeting Resource
The March 8, 2017 meeting of the Michigan Wellness Council featured the presentation Millennials in the Workplace by Brett Powell, Vice President, Wellness Consultant (American Institute for Preventive Medicine) and Rachel Knapp and Kim Lotzoff (Quicken Loans). The presentation focused on how there are more Millennials in the workforce than any other generational cohort. The way in which this generation responds to technology, education, communication, and their own health varies drastically compared to prior generations. Expecting all generations to respond equally to wellness programs is outdated thinking. This engaging presentation highlighted the defining characteristics of Millennials, research, case study from Quicken Loans, and concrete strategies to better engage millennials in a wellness program.
