Hay to Present at Event Addressing “Millennial” Issues and Communication Styles

AUBURN, Maine – Skelton Taintor & Abbott is sponsoring the upcoming event, “I’m Ready for a Raise: Cracking the Millennial Code,” to be held on Feb. 19 at the Gendron Franco Center in Lewiston through the Central Maine Human Resources Association (CMHRA). Skelton Taintor & Abbott attorney Jordan Payne Hay will present along with David Pease, senior vice president and director of talent, diversity and inclusion at Bangor Savings Bank and James Brissenden, director of business development at Clark Insurance.

Hay, Pease and Brissenden will provide practical advice on inter-generational conversations and give some insight into how to address the questions and concerns of millennials. They will present mock conversations with difficult questions that a manager might get from a “millennial.” CMHRA attendees will then discuss and analyze the conversations and dig deeply into each scenario. Hay, Pease and Brissenden will then re-play the conversation utilizing new tools gathered from the group’s discussions.

“The goal of this event is to provide employers with practical advice on how to handle very real issues that come up in the work place with younger employees. The key is understanding where these ‘millennials’ are coming from and providing effective solutions that work for the young person and the employer,” says Hay.

Hay’s practice at Skelton Taintor & Abbott includes employment law, civil rights, human resources support, and intellectual property. She is licensed to practice in both Maine and Massachusetts.
