Description

Explore The Future of Team and Culture

Raised by Baby Boomers and Generation Xers, most Millennials grew up exposed to travel sports or enjoying a team-oriented extra-curricular activity or two. Even in the classroom, group projects were assigned to them as often as research papers. The result: This generation oftentimes will only consider a job that offers participation on a highly-engaged team. Generation Z, just beginning to tiptoe into the workforce as new hires or interns, also craves a similar work style.

To compete for these elite employees, today’s top companies and organizations must offer cultures that support these expectations of teamwork and collaboration; encourage interaction and communication; reward collaboration as well as individual performance, and place emphasis on and value constant and accessible feedback.

To explore how the information revolution and the new generations of workers have disrupted team formation, join Southwest Michigan First and our keynote speaker, Brad Saar, president of Stryker’s medical division. Brad is well versed in teamwork as the global medical technology manufacturer has been named to the 100 Best Companies To Work For® list by Fortune and Great Place to Work for the past eight consecutive years, Brad will be accompanied by our expert panelists: Kristine Cunningham, Human Resources Director of Kalamazoo County; Keri McCarthy, Business Partner—DISHER Talent Solutions, and Jim Marshall of Vice President, Culture at Landscape Forms. The future of your team depends on how your organizational culture will adapt!
