Four Generations in the Workplace: Working Effectively Across Generational Lines
Thursday, November 15, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (CST)
Chicago, United States
The concept of generation gaps is nothing new, however for the first time the workplace is filled with employees representing four (4) different generations. From the Matures to Gen Y, this seminar is designed to reduce workplace conflict and stimulate positive interaction across generational lines. If the goal is to work in harmony, learning how to communicate, motivate and evaluate employees in part based on their generational preference is key. Participants will take a look at the characteristics of each generation and gain insight into how to successfully coexist with older and younger colleagues. It will also provide managers and supervisors with strategies for recruiting, retaining, and motivating by using the generational differences in a positive way.
