Keynote Speaker Presentation

-Chad Kopitzke-
Founder of NeXtGen Advantage
Topic: Millennials & Multigenerational Considerations

The talent landscape is changing, and smart companies are moving forward with the times. Do you know what it takes to recruit, retain, and motivate top talent in today's environment? I will offer key insights surrounding three important questions:

  • What talent acquisition problems lie ahead?
  • Who is this up and coming talent audience (millennials)?
  • How can we create a powerful program, and why does it matter?

I’m a Generation Xer stuck between two of the largest generations in American history – Millennials on one side, Boomers on the other. Through my background of managing internship programs on a university campus, I’ve played third party between companies and students. I hear what business leaders need and what keeps them up at night. And I understand today’s college kids – how they think and what they value. Yet my own mentors have been C-level corporate Boomers, so I can also relate to how they operate and what they expect. All of this places me at a unique vantage point in modern business culture. I see the problems. I build solutions. I know how to help generations connect – rather than collide – for the sake of business growth.

NeXtGen Advantage is a niche consulting firm dedicated to helping employers attract, motivate, and retain young talent for long-term sustainability. In today’s economic environment, more than ever before, organizations need to understand how to assimilate the next generation of talent into the workplace. Your future success depends on it.

The Problem
Boomers are exiting the workplace, taking with them a wealth of tribal knowledge crucial to your organization. How will you refill their gap with the next generation of talent?

Today’s leadership struggles to understand the Millennial culture. In turn, Millennials struggle to fit the mold of traditional workplace hierarchy. How can the span of generations come together for the long-term health of your organization?

The Solution
Progressive organizations will establish intentional feeder systems designed to attract, motivate, and retain young talent. Have you considered where your organization will stand five years from now? Ten years? Twenty? As experienced employees transition out, you must have a system in place that empowers your organization to grow and succeed seamlessly.

The NeXtGen Advantage
You need the experience, insight, and expertise to establish rock-solid internship programs and new grad recruitment strategies. NeXtGen Advantage has it. We know how Millennials think and operate. We can help your organization build a program that connects generations and turns our differences into collective strengths. Within each program, we will create:

1. An efficient process – Learn how to effectively recruit, screen, train, motivate, develop and retain young talent for the long-term benefit of your organization.

 2. High quality – Do you know what today’s college students are saying about your workplace? If you’re serious about attracting top talent, their perception matters. Students talk. They know the “best” places to work and the employers to avoid. We’ll help you improve your perception by creating quality internship experiences for students – which will boost your opportunities to employ top talent after graduation.

3. Sustainability – We don’t just come in to offer ideas. We’ll help you implement and sustain them. NeXtGen Advantage will work with your team to identify the right people within your organization to own your feeder program and propel it forward.
