When it comes to recruiting and retaining Millennial talent, statistics confirm that the need for investment in technology is crucial. PwC’s research indicates that 59% place high value on an employer’s provision of state-of-the-art technology when considering a job. By 2030, Millennials will represent 75% of the workforce, is your business ready to accommodate them and empower them to do their best work?

To help you get up to speed, GCI are hosting an expert-led roundtable in Manchester which will feature demonstrations and education on Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business and our Omni-Channel Contact Centre – the key blend of solutions needed to transform your workplace and support not only your current workforce, but your future one as well. We will also showcase Microsoft 365 – the solution which underpins all collaboration and communication platforms – helping your people stay secure on any device, in any location.

What you get at this exclusive free event:

  • An understanding of the solutions your business needs in order to attract and empower Millennials
  • A demonstration of how Microsoft Teams enables greater collaboration
  • Insight into Law firm Keoghs’ digital transformation which has enabled them to attract and retain talent
  • Examples of how Microsoft 365 ensures your business is continually secure
  • Information on how to make your Customer Contact Centre experience truly omni-channel
