Event description

Description

The Exchange 2019 is the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce’s annual member-showcase. It draws 600 attendees and over 100 showcasing businesses, from all industries, of all sizes. The Exchange is an exchange of ideas, of business cards, and ultimately of business. It’s for Chicago region businesses to show one another what they’re doing, how and why they’re doing it, and the value it provides to clients. This is a business development event with a casual vibe and a dash of thought leadership.

2019 Panel Discussion: Maximizing a Multigenerational Workforce

Baby Boomers (1948-1963), Generation X (1964-1978) and Millennials (1979-1997) comprise the bulk of the workforce. But the Veterans generation (1939-1947) remains able and eager, and the leading-edges of Generation Z (1998+) have resumes in hand. A five-generation workforce – and a labor market requiring every part of it – has 18 and 80-year-olds working, training and competing alongside each another.

The styles and preferences of each generation are different; from how they learn, to the hours they like to work, to their personal definitions of success. It’s a lot. And employers must manage all of it, maximizing the strengths of their talent and making the workplace a welcoming place where everyone can thrive.

So… how does that work? The Exchange 2019 panel discussion, Maximizing a Multigenerational Workforce, will tell us. From what works to what’s failed, experts from a wide-range of backgrounds and industries will tell our business audience about best practices to know, pitfalls to avoid, and emerging trends to prepare for.
