Governments everywhere are scrambling to keep talent. Competition from the private sector is heating up right alongside a massive retirement wave, and generational differences are making a bad situation even worse. Workforce development and retention have emerged as the industry's most pressing concerns. The task of retaining Millennials seems like an impossible feat, yet XYZ University's research proves the opposite is true.
You are invited to join Sarah Sladek, XYZ University's CEO, for an insightful workshop on how to build and retain the workforce your government needs. She provides strategies for reducing turnover and engaging employees now, as well as insights on what will engage and motivate employees.

Boomers. Xers. Ys. Gen Z. This is the first time in history that four generations are represented in such large numbers in the workforce at the same time, or amidst such transformation and change. Not surprising, misunderstandings and tensions have become commonplace, and turnover is skyrocketing while morale is plummeting. Participants will learn about their unique work behaviors and values, how they differ from their co-workers, as well as strategies for turning differences into a team-building advantage.
How to Engage the Most Unengaged Workforce:
With a population that rivals the size of their parents' Baby Boomer generation, Generation Y (also known as Millennials) is often hailed as the future hope for our workplaces, industries, and government. The problem is that many Ys are not wired for the traditional ways of work. But why? Join Sarah Sladek for this insightful, sometimes humorous, and often shocking view into the Millennial mindset and the future of the workplace. In her presentation, you will be introduced to the recruiting, retention, management, and team-building techniques needed to engage the next generation and create a productive, happy workplace for all generations.
