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.

In the spirit of Nickel and Dimed , a necessary and revelatory expose of the invisible human workforce that powers the web-and that foreshadows the true future of work. Hidden beneath the surface of the web, lost in our wrong-headed debates about AI, a new menace is looming. Anthropologist Mary L. Gray and computer scientist Siddharth Suri team up to unveil how services delivered by companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Uber can only function smoothly thanks to the judgment and experience of a vast, invisible human labor force. These people doing "ghost work" make the internet seem smart. They perform high-tech piecework: flagging X-rated content, proofreading, designing engine parts, and much more. An estimated 8 percent of Americans have worked at least once in this "ghost economy," and that number is growing. They usually earn less than legal minimums for traditional work, they have no health benefits, and they can be fired at any time for any reason, or none. There are no labor laws to govern this kind of work, and these latter-day assembly lines draw in-and all too often overwork and underpay-a surprisingly diverse range of workers: harried young mothers, professionals forced into early retirement, recent grads who can't get a toehold on the traditional employment ladder, and minorities shut out of the jobs they want. Gray and Suri also show how ghost workers, employers, and society at large can ensure that this new kind of work creates opportunity-rather than misery-for those who do it.
This book explores the use of Blockchain and smart contract technologies to develop new ways to finance independent films and digital media worldwide. Using case studies of Alibaba and in-depth, on-set observation of a Sino-US coproduction, as well as research collected from urban China, Hong Kong, Europe, and the USA, Online Film Production in China Using Blockchain and Smart Contracts explores new digital platforms and what this means for the international production of creative works.This research assesses the change in media consciousness from young urban audiences, their emergence as a potential participative and creative community within dis-intermediated, decentralised and distributed crowdfunding and crowdsourcing models. This research proposes solutions on how these young emerging local creative talents can be identified and nurtured early on, particularly those who now produce creative and artistic audiovisual content whether these works are related to film, Virtual Reality (VR), video game, graphic novels, or music. Ultimately, a new media content finance and production platform implementing blockchain is proposed to bring transparency in the film sector and open doors to emerging artists in digital media.Appropriate for both professionals and academics in the film industry as well as computer science.
