Y-Size Your Business
An Insider’s Guide to Maximizing the Performance of Gen Y Employees

60-minute keynote to half-day seminar

Born between 1977 and 1995, Gen Y employees are entering the workforce in record numbers. Along with a new view of “business casual,” Gen Y adheres to a different set of workplace beliefs and priorities than other generations already employed. Gen Y’s attitude toward work can make us a challenge to motivate, retain, and develop—or a strategic opportunity. The difference is how you lead us. In Y-Size Your Business, bestselling Gen Y author Jason Ryan Dorsey cuts through the stereotypes to teach participants Gen Y’s workplace mindset. He then reveals a step-by-step process and specific actions that employers can immediately adopt to unlock the talent, loyalty, creativity, and performance of this emerging workforce.

As a member of Gen Y, Jason is uniquely qualified to discuss his generation’s workplace mindset. He balances an insider’s view of his generation along with the workplace realities facing executives and managers in an increasingly competitive global market.

He can customize his presentation to focus on the aspects of Gen Y employment most important to your organization:

·         Attracting and Hiring Gen Y

·         Onboarding and Engaging Gen Y

·         Motivating and Leading Gen Y

·         Developing and Professionalizing Gen Y

·         Retaining Gen Y

 Presentation Outcomes:

·         Understand Gen Y’s workplace beliefs, preferences, and priorities—all from the perspective of an insider. (Jason even explains why Gen Y sends text messages without vowels.)

·         Engage Gen Y employees from our first day at work. This is critical because Gen Y decides on our first day if we will stay with an employer long-term.

·         Impact your organization with creative, ready-to-use actions that make the most of Gen Y’s employment potential while saving you money.

The 78 million members of Gen Y have finally come of age. And we’re spending money. Lots of it! Businesses are now competing fiercely for Gen Y’s attention, affection, and customer loyalty.

"Jason did a phenomenal job in his presentation of not only breaking down the different generations, but more importantly, giving us actual ideas of how we can implement this information in our day-to-day operations to increase retention of all of our employees. His interactive presentation was extremely well received by our management team. It was very beneficial for our managers to hear what it is that motivates Generation Y and what they can personally do to connect with these employees… I would highly recommend Jason Dorsey as a ‘Generational’ expert speaker.”

Jeanie Landolt, Training Manager
Enterprise Rent-A-Car of Baltimore

"Your presentation, coupled with your handout, helped me gain a much greater understanding of the "Y" generation. You masterfully had the audience slip into the shoes (sneakers or sandals if you prefer) of Gen ‘Y’ and take a glimpse of life from their perspective, which is their reality. Wonderfully good job and thanks for the experience. It was a great way to end the day."
