Adam Smiley Poswolsky is a millennial workplace expert, an international keynote speaker, and the best selling author The Quarter Life Breakthrough and The Breakthrough Speaker. Smiley helps companies attract, retain, and empower millennial talent through speaking on the topics like employee engagement and intergenerational collaboration.
A lot of companies are now struggling with retention and keeping young people longer than six months, a year, which is incredibly costly. Millennial turnover alone costs U.S. companies $30 billion a year because it's incredibly costly to hire someone, train them, and then have them leave after a couple months.
So, Adam is trying to change workforce mindsets and cultures by helping people think about how they can make young employees feel happy, engaged, purpose-driven, and focused on growth in the workplace. “Which I think is possible, but is definitely a little bit of a different paradigm than the traditional workforce engagement.”
