              Corporate recruiters and employers tend to perceive Millennials as a major flight risk, not worth investing in because they ll be out the door in a year or two. Yet our data reveals this stereotype to be grossly misapplied. While Millennials with a financial safety net are far mo...re likely than those who lack it to be a flight risk, they comprise a mere nine percent of this talent cohort. In Misunderstood Millennial Talent, we bust other myths about employees between the ages of 21 and 34 to stress the imperative to talent specialists of investing in this next generation of leaders.

              The healthcare industry has a solution, at its fingertips, to some of its most intractable problems--but it still hasn't grasped that solution. Its most dominant market segment consists of customers and end users who share needs that cut across health condition, age, ethnicity, n...ationality, education, and income--but the industry isn't focused on this segment. The needs of this dominant segment are understood and shared by many employees inside healthcare companies, including at senior levels. But their insights into their own demographic are rarely solicited. Who are these insightful employees? Who are these customers? And what is the solution for the industry's future growth? Women.

              Economist and award-winning author Sylvia Ann Hewlett blends vivid stories with powerful new data in assessing the impact of the #MeToo movement in corporate America and provides concrete action to help executives and companies create more inclusive and safe work environments for... women, people of color, and LGBTQ employees. While the #MeToo movement has exposed the enormous harm done by sexual misconduct in the workplace, the movement's full promise has not been fulfilled, Sylvia Ann Hewlett argues. Showcasing new data on the incidence of sexual harassment and assault at work, she reveals how the movement has focused almost exclusively on white women and failed to support other vulnerable groups who are also targets of abuse. Black men, gay men and women, and Latinas experience particularly high rates of sexual harassment and assault. In addition to exploring the movement's limitations, Hewlett examines the collateral damage inflicted by #MeToo. She looks at hits to the bottom line (lawsuits and settlements, tarnished brands, and stock devaluations) and hits to the talent pipeline. In particular she shows how male leaders, fearful of gossip and legal action, are increasingly skittish about sponsoring young women, no matter how high performing they are. This makes it much more likely that women will stall out mid-career and will deprive companies of diversity in the C-Suite and gender smarts around decision-making tables. Digging deep into examples that range from Fox News, Nike, and Google to CBS, Michigan State University, and the Catholic Church, Hewlett lays bare the financial losses associated with sexual misconduct scandals. No wonder corporate chief risk officers newly have #MeToo in their line of sight! A third of this book is devoted to solutions and Hewlett offers a three-pronged strategy, combining legal remedies with individual and corporate action steps that can be used to protect employees and businesses they work for.
