How Digital Signage Can Help You Reach Your Millennial Employees

There are roughly 80 million millennials in the United States today, and half of this number is in the workforce. Millennials are described as well-educated, entitled, confident and tech savvy.

Most organizations assign content tasks to their marketing, communications or HR departments. Some schools allow student groups and department heads to contribute. But who pulls it all together to make sure you’re showing the right content to the right people?
