Meeting future growth projections will require companies to do a better job attracting and retaining the next generation of salespeople. The problem is that most Millennials don’t see selling as a desirable career choice.

In this month’s Performance Perspective we explore:

  • Supporting the “virtual freedom” found in sales with mobile incentives

  • Reinforcing how a sales position exposes Millennials to new things

  • Connecting employee efforts with the positive effect it has on others
