There are numerous generations represented in today’s workforce, each with a core set of values and characteristics that differ from each other. These variances produce frustration, confusion, and misunderstanding. Complicating these differences further is an ever-evolving set of societal ‘norms’ and technology. Professionals under the age of thirty can’t recall a world without email, while many Baby Boomers are struggling to grasp social media and an evolving work ethic. Gaining an understanding of each generation’s characteristics is the key to an effective and happy workplace. Generational Workplace Strategies will provide tips and strategies to help understand, motivate, and succeed with each generation and leave the participants with thought-provoking ideas that may change how you not only view your co-workers, but also yourself.
Topics will include:
Explore each generations timeframe and impact
Insight into each generations core characteristics
Strategies for workplace harmony
Diffusing what characteristics are generational versus societal
