Our "Pill in the Twinkie": How we utilize 'startup culture' to translate 23-years of knowledge to our millennial staff
There's a lot of talk about who millennials really are, what they want, and how they thrive. (Spoiler alert: most companies and organizations get it wrong, even though millennials make up the majority of the workforce now!) In this session, we'll cover how DoSomething.org, the world's largest organization for young people and social change, utilizes 'startup culture' to maximize our staff's individual and collective potential -- 85% of whom are millennials -- to impact our 5.3 million members every day.
You will leave with concrete examples of culture tweaks and traditions used at DoSomething.org so you can jump-start a culture of impact in your office.
This session is co-facilitated by Kary Perez.
