The 5G (generation) Workforce

February 16, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 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) Millennials (1980-1999) and iGen (2000->). Five 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 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 half-day highly interactive, skill building, results oriented, workshop that 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 the 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.
