In conversation with Chinwe Onyeagoro, President, Great Place to Work Institute
With 70 million Millennials now the largest segment of the U.S. workforce, how do they stay satisfied in the workplace while companies build their bottom lines? With a trust-based workplace, Millennials thrive in their jobs, while companies can also outperform financially, according to Chinwe Onyeagoro of Great Place to Work. With a sustainable, fossil-free 401(k), Millennials are more engaged, innovative and can build a better world while saving for their future, according to Timothy Yee of Green Retirement, Inc. An HIP Investors' R. Paul Herman says that by going beyond traditional investing, Millennials can use their forthcoming $40 trillion of inherited wealth to improve the health, wealth, earth, equality and trust of our world via their investing.
