Keeping the Millennials: Why Companies Lose Bil...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As the Baby Boomers retire and the young Millennials, also known as Generation Y, enter the workforce, this massive demographic shift is causing big problems for even the most successful companies. These Millennials are highly sought-after for their technological savvy, energetic work ethos, and young, hip attitude that can help companies connect with young consumers. But all is not well. Many companies are able to recruit Millennial workers effectively, but they end up alienating and losing them shortly thereafter. Despite their good qualities, the Millennials don't always share the traditional values of Boomers, with whom they often come into conflict. Disenchanted, many Millennials give up and look for opportunities outside the corporate world. This high turnover rate among the young - who must be recruited, trained, and then replaced - is costing companies billions of dollars every year. If your company is struggling to hang on to young workers, Keeping the Millennials offers sage advice and smart strategies for building a workplace that welcomes employees of every generation. It explains how to lower turnover rates and the high costs that accompany them and suggests effective policies for attracting and retaining young workers. You'll learn where and how to find energetic twentysomethings; the big mistakes that could brand your company as a bad place for young professionals; the most common complaints the generations direct at each other; and the top ten things you can do to make your company a place where young people want to stay and build a career. Today, you can't afford to let generational differences stand in the way of getting things done. Nor can you afford to alienate one generation by favoring another. Happy employees - of every generation - lead to happy customers. If you want to keep your business stocked with young, fresh, talented people - and dramatically cut your turnover costs in the process - Keeping the Millennials 1. Language: English.

The Renaissance of Legacy Systems
149,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Today, software professionals recognize that change in software systems is inevitable. There are many systems currently in operation, however, which were developed before the need for change was understood. Such systems are commonly referred to as 'legacy systems', and were developed with relatively short lifetimes in mind. Software engineering is a relatively young discipline which is continually improving to provide better support for the development of software systems. What were once state-of-the-art techniques, tools, and processes are now dated, and have resulted in systems which are not responsive to change. For historical reasons, dated development practice traded maintainability for other system attributes, such as cost and performance. A significant number of legacy systems remain in operation because they are critical to the business processes which they support. The combination of extended lifetimes and poor maintainability means that legacy systems are expensive to change, and in many cases they cannot accommodate emerging requirements. This is clearly an undesirable situation, which, until recently, has been tackled by replacing the system or attempting to maintain it. Replacing a legacy system is dangerous, since you face the risk of losing vital business knowledge which is embedded in many old systems. In many cases, system replacement is not cost-effective. Conversely, if you attempt to maintain a legacy system, there is often little return on the investment in maintenance effort and the system remains difficult and expensive to change.
