Four Generations One Workforce

November 16, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Four Generations One Workforce
You’re moving quickly but are you moving fast enough? If you’re keeping up you know that there are four, soon to be five generations of employees in the workforce:

  • the more formal Silents born 1933 – 1945
  • the relationship and values oriented Boomers born 1946 – 1964
  • the savvy yet skeptical Gen Xer’s born 1965 – 1979
  • the fast, efficient and techy Millennials born 1980 – 1999
  • the iGen (or Gen Z) born >2000

Four generations of employees and one workforce. A workforce that is different than in the past. There is a strong belief that the younger generations, Gen X and Millennials (Gen Y) are different from the generations that preceded them – the Baby Boomers and the Silents. You probably notice subtle differences every day – differences in communication styles, work ethic, career outlook, expectations of bosses, or what keeps people engaged in their work. And while this generational mix has potential for conflict, misunderstanding and even resentment — there are huge opportunities for productivity, creativity, knowledge sharing and strategic advantage.
The demands of this changing workforce bring us new challenges. Today we need hard hitting, information about the workforce and what we must do to remain relevant — how to recruit, onboard, coach, engage and retain each generation. Multi-generational leadership is not just a fad, it is the new essential. Providing leaders and employees with skills and tools to successfully navigate the five generation workforce is the new core, critical element for forward-thinking organizations.
The Learning Café half day highly interactive, skill building, results oriented, workshop focuses on generational similarities and differences and what every employee can do to create and contribute to a productive, energizing workplace. The workshop includes facilitated discussion to build understanding of the impact of a changing workforce. We’ll examine your organization’s demographic data; explore best practices; and provide a catalyst for candid conversations about the productivity impact of generational issues.
Participants will view talent through a generational lens; to identify strengths, opportunities and challenges to create a winning strategy to bridge the generation gap. We will introduce the power of communication that connects with talent of all generations and share engagement strategies that tap into the talents of others, involving them so that they are full participants in the work: inspired by the work, feel a strong sense of personal accomplishment in what they do, care about the future of the organization and are willing to invest effort to see that the organization succeeds.
