Four Generations One Workforce

August 4, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

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: Silents (1933-1945) Baby Boomers (1946-1964) Gen X (1965-1979) and Millennials (1980-1999.) Four generations of employees and one workforce.
Today’s workforce is a very different workforce 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 a changing workforce and workplace bring us new challenges. Today’s competitive advantage is about talent. Today we need hard hitting, information about the workplace 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 employees with skills and tools to successfully navigate the four generation workforce is the new core, critical element for forward-thinking organizations.
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.
Learning methods may include small and large group discussion; paired activities, scenarios, independent reflection, and application to work. The Learning Café will provide tools, actions and practical tips to encourage workshop dialogue and easy implementation.
