Understanding the Four Generations of Employees

Today’s workforce is more unique than at any time in history as this is the first time in America that we have had four different generations of employees working together. Generational differences can impact everything from management style, team building, decision-making, handling change, customer service, and organizational productivity.

Each generation has distinct behaviors, attitudes, expectations, habits and motivation. In this dynamic and important one day program, participants will learn about their personal generational style. Plus, they will learn how to bridge their style to be more effective when dealing with others. Through interactive exercises, trainer-led discussions and fun group activities, participants will leave with a new insight into themselves and how to work more effectively with members of the other generations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the four distinct generations
  • Recognize the core values of the four generations
  • Understand what motivates each generation
  • Manage generational conflict and communication gaps
  • Learn from each other and how one may need to change to match other’s generational attitudes

Continental breakfast and an afternoon snack will be served.  There will be a one hour break for lunch.

Date:  Tuesday, May 10, 2016
Time:  9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location:  Hassenfeld Luria Conference Room
