Multigenerational Workforce: Bridging the Generational Gap in your Workplace
Duration: 60 Minutes
How are multi-generational issues impacting your business? What will be the long-term effects of "Brain Drain"? Organizations have as many as four generations currently in the workplace. There will be a significant number of older workers leaving in the next few years. How organizations engage the younger workers and develop succession plans will determine the future success of the organization.
Objectives of the Presentation
Why Should you Attend
- Overview of the different generations
- The challenges faced in the workplace
- Commonality among the generations
- Solutions to bridging the generation gap in the workforce
A core challenge over the next decade will be to attract and retain a skilled work force as the labor market continues to tighten, technology continues to evolve, and fewer foreign students immigrate to America for job opportunities. This situation is exacerbated as companies find themselves managing four generations of American workers:
- Silents (Born between 1925 and 1946)
- Baby Boomers (Born between 1946 and 1964)
- Generation Xers (Born between 1965 and 1980)
- Generation Ys or Millennials (born after 1980)
Each generation has different norms and behaviors that impact the workplace. Each generation believes that its work ethic is better than that of subsequent generations. Since you’re not going to change work ethic, a better question is how do I recruit, retain, and motivate your entire group of employees. In this course, we will look at the changes that have taken places and provide some solutions of how to manage multi generations with different communication style, work expectation, career aspiration and much more.
Participants will learn about how each generation likes to be managed as well as what motivates each generation. They should leave with information to develop an action plan for succession.
