Event description


From the team who brought you Future Works: Equipping Leaders to Champion Diversity with inclusion speaker Hayley Barnard, Future Works returns for the second instalment in a four-part series of thought-provoking and informative speaker and professional perspective panel events addressing recruitment challenges to secure our working futures.

On the 19th June, over a simple lunch from the Alpine, at the iMuseum on Kingswood Grove, four career shapers share a fantastic insight into managing talent in a multigenerational workforce, stewarded by journalist and presenter Beth Espey.

Panellists will debate and challenge common approaches to a core challenge companies are facing today – how to harness the skills and work styles of 5 different generations for talent development and to create productive synergies.

On the agenda:

  • What to think about when recruiting a multigenerational workforce
  • How to lead, inspire and effectively engage a multigenerational workforce
  • The different needs of millennials, Gen Xers and baby boomers and their experience expectations
  • Prime motivators for each generation
  • The business benefit of uniting a multigenerational workforce

Registration is free and includes lunch (12:30 – 2:00pm). Places are limited and we expect Future Works: Managing Intergenerational Talent to be another sell-out event. We’d therefore encourage you to register at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment.

Future Works is brought to you by leading Recruitment Agency Search and Select and Global Life Assurance business Zurich International. Organised by Bold Consultancy.
