Event Description:
Carol Hatton-Holmes presented Turn Generational Differences into Organizational Assets in March of 2015. Feedback from that session resulted in a demand for a follow-up workshop covering how to put best practices in place to optimize generational differences in your organization. Professionals responsible for hiring and/or managing employees need to take the lead to assist their organizations to overcome potential challenges. Attend and learn how to influence the full diversity of the modern workforce. Organizations that work proactively to tackle the different generations will garner the benefits, while the ones that ignore the impact of the multi-generational workforce jeopardize losing the war on talent. For the first time in history, there are four influential generations in the workplace. This workshop will review these generations, discuss the best way to communicate with each and will clarify the expectations and values they share in order to create a dynamic and innovative workplace. Learn how to craft a roadmap that will honor each generation’s unique contributions while focusing on their similarities to implement programs that can increase efficiency, community and collaboration. Case studies will be shared from both local and Fortune 500 companies that have implemented some of those programs and the impact they have had on employee retention and engagement.
