Share on:

InteRDom Internships in the Dominican Republic, a program of Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and its sister organization in the Dominican Republic, Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE), is pleased to present the 8th edition of the annual InteRDom Conference, which will take place October 29-30, 2013 and feature the topic “Millennials in the Workplace.”

Millennials, also referred to as Generation Y, are part of the demographic of young adults born between 1982 and 2002. This generation has characteristics that distinguish it from the previous one, Generation X, because of the historic moment in which they are living. Members of Generation Y have different customs and ideals in that they are coming of age in the digital era and have easy access to technology. These characteristics cause this group to perform differently in the work environment than previous generations, which is particularly important for executives who wish to achieve efficiency within their organizations in a multigenerational environment.

During the InteRDom Conference the following topics will be highlighted:

  • Understanding the demographics and psychography of the new wave of younger employees.
  • Identify the highlights and hurdles for the workplace associated with Millennials’ unique characteristics.
  • Increase the organization’s position in the employment marketplace by learning how to attract and recruit Millennial candidates.
  • Build a comprehensive organizational approach to the professional development and management of a multi-generational workplace.
  • Discuss tangible tools to incorporate Millennials into the workplace to harness their skill sets.

The conference will take place over the course of 2 days and will be organized in the following manner:
