Generations in the Workplace: A Battle Royale
We know the stereotypes: Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennials, Gen Z. In the workplace, the generational divide is most apparent when comparing communication styles, work preferences, and values—which describes just about everything that matters at work. Intended audience: whole organization.

About the Event
It’s easy to point to generational stereotypes as evidence or blame when something goes awry. Sometimes those stereotypes are funny. Sometimes they are true. But, mostly, generational stereotypes serve only to perpetuate disharmony and discord at work.
In this session, we’ll explore a little bit of history, some psychology, and a whole lot of popular culture to uncover the reality of who the generations are, why they matter, and how each contributes to the workplace. We’ll outline a definitive plan for managers to use that effectively accommodates all the generations in the workplace. Companies whose managers treat their employees in a generationally appropriate way benefit from a more productive and engaged workforce.
